My name is Umal and I graduated in 2015. I started volunteering with an organisation that had paid my tuition through clinical school as a technical advisor on a malnutrition project in Iganga, eastern Uganda for a year.
Due to my competence I was hired by another organisation musana community development organisation (www.musana.org) to help in the setup of their health centre (musana community health centre ), a project that I thought was too big for me to handle but with the help of my teachers and mentors at CIU the hospital was set up in a space of one year and I can say it the leading private not for profit now health centre in the district.
This opened up more opportunities for me both locally and internationally and I worked on multiple projects some of which I was privileged to do in partnership with CIU. I was privileged and landed another deal with new life ministries to set up another health facility further in the district where I also doubled as a clinical administrator during which we extended both affordable update health services to the people of idudi through idudi community health centre. I have created employment opportunities for more than 5 classmates and those that were both in years below and ahead of me.
