|“My name is Victoria Fred, a student of Human Rights, Mukono. I would love to give thanks to the Lord Almighty for His protection upon our lives and the far He has brought us amidst this pandemic which has robbed us of all our necessary needs of life. As the most parts of the world continue to be in a lockdown, we realize that the education of children has to be paused since schools are being closed for months now. This has affected mostly the finalists whose fate of education is yet to be determined. But in God we trust and we believe He has the best plans for us and that brighter days are yet to come for us, this pandemic has taught us to be united and have strong faith in the Lord. Thanks a lot to CRESS UK and most especially to Caroline Lamb for taking it upon herself to ensure that we continue learning from home and for that we are very grateful. The data bundles that you sent us were very useful and that we were able to make use of it very well, the course taken was career changing and that I was able to learn so many new things that I had not learnt before. I was able to enroll in some of the courses that I see are useful to my career and that was all possible through your continuous and endless support. I really appreciate everything you’re doing in order to support us and see that we achieve our dreams. Thanks to one of us Murye who also took his time to make sure that we get the required resources for the online training. Thank you and May God reward you and bless you. ”|
