BACKGROUND
I am the first born in my family. I have three siblings; two sisters and a brother. We grew up from a loving neighbourhood where parenting was done communally. My parents are peasant farmers and cultivation is the major source of livelihood. I went to a private school near home for my primary education and a government school for my secondary education.
WHY
I chose my field of study because it facilitates disease diagnosis, which is a crucial step in treatment. I hope to work in a public hospital as I will, in that way, be able to help vulnerable patients by promoting equality and proper laboratory services. This will help to reduce the mortality rates. I also hope to join medical associations which will improve medical services in the society. My dream job is to work as a medical laboratory scientist in a public hospital or a research organization. I would like to create posititve impacts by working towards promoting good laboratory services for people. I would like to also work towards a solution to the health challenges affecting people, and implement the possible solutions.
INTERESTS
During my free time, I like attending church activities such as fellowships. I also read inspirational books. And, I also enjoy volunteering at nearby health centers for various activities.

What kind of community outreach activity are you planning to do this semester?

I plan to do a community sensitization about adherence to covid 19 standard operating procedures. I am doing this sensitization with a fellow Help to Help changemaker called Mulungi Priscillah N. We chose this activity because Uganda is now experiencing the second wave of Covid 19 and we have also noticed that people are now reluctant to following Covid 19 standard operating procedures for example wearing masks. We shall do this community engagement in our community of residence that is Taso village. We plan to do this sensitization on 27th May, 2021.

What worries you in the world and what can you do to change that?

Poor disposal of garbage - especially plastic has become a great concern. In Uganda for example people tend to dump rubbish even where it is not designated to be.

I think the government should set up strict laws against poor disposal of garbage. Serious punishments and fines should be put in place especially for those found at fault. Systems should also be set up inorder to do proper sorting of rubbish especially for plastics. Specific areas should be designated for disposal of rubbish and the necessary authorities should be in charge. Garbage that is biodegradable should be put to use as manure or used for energy production. Some garbage for example plastics can be recycled and put to better use. I will sensitize communities about the benefits of proper garbage disposal especially on soil fertility.

I will also do demonstrations to teach people how to sort rubbish that is biodegradable material from non-biodegradable. I will also be exemplary by picking up litter I come across as I move so that others can adopt the same method. I will also put up some posters indicating the dangers of poor garbage disposal. I will also advocate for campaigns to be done on garbage disposal for example a village cleaning campaign.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: How can I trust Elizabeth Atwiine is a real student?

A: Elizabeth Atwiine has applied for a scholarship from Help to Help and was granted one. We have reviewed the written application and conducted a thorough interview with Elizabeth Atwiine . We have also double-checked the given identity with Mbarara University . We now and then also do home-visits and met with a majority of our students.

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

A: Each semester, Help to Help pay school fees for our students. We reserve the right to only pay school fees for students who live up to the agreed terms and conditions for the scholarship which includes submitting grades in time, good academic perform and continuous communication with Help to Help among other things. The payments are done directly to each university. Once payments are done, we demand the universities to send us official receipts.

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.
