SUCCESS STORY – TAP JOHN PUOL (2021 Graduate from Ndejje University)
It is with great joy that I graduated with a first class degree from Ndejje University under the DAFI scholarship scheme managed by Windle International Uganda.
I was honored to be admitted for a course leading to the award of B.Sc. in Sustainable Agriculture and Extension in 2016. At the time of admission, I did not have the funds to support me at University. My brother in-law supported me through primary and secondary school but was unable to continue supporting me at university level.
When the DAFI scholarship was advertised in 2017, I applied and was among the lucky students from Rhino camp in Arua that were selected to benefit from the scholarship.
I am happy that during my studies, I never faced any difficulties because Windle International Uganda paid my allowance and tuition in time. Since I was not getting disruptions, I concentrated on my studies and attained a first class degree. I was so happy to be recognized by the University as per my certificate of honour
I am currently working with Welthungerhilfe in South Sudan as an Emergency Deputy Head of project. I am currently enrolled for a Master’s in Sustainable Agriculture and Rural Development at Ndejje University and currently studying online. I hope to complete my master’s degree and proceed for PhD. I want be a University lecturer in South Sudan and other African countries.
I am so happy that the scholarship has changed my life and that of my family. I am now in position to sponsor my brothers and sisters in school and support other family members. This would not have been possible without UNHCR/DAFI/Windle International Uganda scholarship.
I would like to wholeheartedly thank Windle International Uganda for sponsoring me. You have brought up a man who will serve South Sudan and Africa at large.
