Ugandan Women can empower others

I have a strong belief that the fear of man kills all dreams and hope. Do not allow yourself to be paralized by fear. King Solomon wrote in the book of Proverbs 9:10 that “the fear of God is the start of wisdom.”

The future generation of Uganda deserves to be brought up in a country that is positively consistent and full of brave women like yourself who have the power to lead from within.

Today we are all thankful to be here, united, moving towards a common goal, vision and a collective agenda. The fight for freedom is not selfish, it is about our children, their children and a generation yet born. I find humor in the reality that you are just the messenger, it’s not about you. It is however powerful that you are all messengers of peace, unity and hope for a prosperous Uganda. We fight because we can and we are hopeful because no matter the disappointments that lie before and ahead of us,  hope is infinite.
