BACKGROUND
I come from a humble family living in Uganda. My parents are separated and I live with my mother. Each has four other children of whom I am first born on either side. My father is a retired engineer since 2015 with no way of earning income and therefore stopped making any financial contribution to my studies leaving the entire burden on my mother who is a secretary with low income and a single provider for all her children struggling here and there to keep us in school.
WHY Medicine & Health
After obtaining a Masters of Medicine in obstetrics and gynecology, I hope to practice as a consultant obstetrician and gynecologist in a Ugandan hospital. In time I hope to establish an organisation concerned with women and reproductive health with rural branches to make reproductive health services more available to women in rural areas. Ultimately I hope that this will improve maternal and child health overall in Uganda.
INTERESTS
I love to reach out to individuals and communities in need through Charity, Reading books of different kinds to broaden my perspective of the world as a whole,travelling and meeting new people, music and poetry as well as series and studying more about Medicine.

I do not have any recent pictures while performing an activity at home since I have been at school for a while now. The picture uploaded show the satin bonnets I started making and selling with a few friends during the lock down. This to provide an affordable quality satin bonnet option to girls and women who couldn't afford the expensive prices on market and to inspire fellow young women to be innovative.

In the above picture I was registering a new patient in the in patients book after taking a bit of history about their illness and examining him to help me get a diagnosis. This prepares me for my future Career as a doctor and builds my confidence as a future doctor.

During the previous week,I was in my home district Mbale helping my grandmother with preparations for an aunt's wedding and thereafter acted as an usher at the wedding. Later in the same week I prepared and attended an installation ceremony of a new Rotaract president of a certain Rotaract club. I am now volunteering at a nearby church in the youth ministry.

The above picture was taken at a medical outreach at Mwizi health centre in Mbarara which had been organised by the rotaract club of MUST together with our medical association to reach out to the community. My end of year exams went well thanks to the support offered by Help to Help which enabled me concentrate on my education without worries. During this holiday ,after the Christmas season,I got the opportunity to be part of a short social medicine course that took place in Gulu Uganda and ended in Rwanda on a scholarship opportunity to learn beyond the biological determinants of health but also the social determinants of disease as well as some leadership skills to help influence health policy in my country. I am excited to get back to the university to continue on my journey towards being a medical doctor as well as interact and learn from those around me.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: How can I trust Charity Mutenyo is a real student?

A: Charity Mutenyo has applied for a scholarship from Help to Help and was granted one. We have reviewed the written application, interviewed Charity Mutenyo via Skype. We have also double-checked the given identity with Mbarara University. We now and then also do home-visits, and met with a clear majority of our students.

Q: If I donate, what happens with my donation?

A: Each semester, Help to Help pays school fees for our students. We reserve the right to only pay school fees for our students who submit their grades and receipts in time, who perform well in school with at least an avarage grade of B. The payment is done straight to each university. We demand each student to bring the official receipt from the administration office.

Q: Why does each student have their own fundraising profile?

A: We believe in a global "we" - our crowdfunding platform is a way for our students to express what societal issues they want to bring change to, and a way for our funders to learn and join their important causes by donating to their studies.
