Former street children in Masaka district on Friday became centre of focus after excelling with better grades in the 2017 Primary Leaving Examinations.

Among them is a 12-year-old Oliver Nabwegamo.

From the streets, she joined Kids Care Primary school-Kirinda in 2014. She used the opportunity to concentrate and up her performance.

She amazingly scored 10 points in PLE. Nabwegamo wants to join Masaka Secondary School one of the best schools in Uganda to begin her journey of becoming a nurse.

 “I decided turn my back on the challenges of the street girl I was and focused on studies. This is because it’s the opportunity I had. It was a second chance to prove myself and I could not afford losing it.” She recounted.

She currently stays at the organization's rehabilitation home with other children including Aminah Nakalembe who scored aggregate 11.

Nakalembe wants to become a teacher and Masaka SS is her choice for secondary education. 

“Hope in life gave me the confidence that I concentrated on revision and prayers so as to succeed,” she said.
