Mbale Secondary School blows off the chart on exams


Karim Nanyiri teaching at a community centre to prepare kids for national exams

The most recent accomplishment for Karim Nanyiri was a Masters Degree in Linguistics on a full scholarship from the Belgian Embassy in Uganda.  He also holds a Masters Degree in English.  He teaches with a passion few people can imagine.

Karim was my project manager when I jumped into Ugand in 2013 to prepare kids for national exams.  Exams leave many kids out of the mainstream.  My education has always been super easy so I asked Karim to help me run a project in our home.  We were soon running poultry projects while he focused on education.  We were helping families run poultry projects from the ground.  Karim being an educator was perfect for the project. Our teachers in Uganda are poorly paid so we toyed around with poultry.  He was teaching while pursuing his Master’s degree at Makerere University, writing his research project and supervising poultry.  Today he sends me the wonderful news about the school where he is teaching.  We are heading for his PhD in education.  He will not disappoint anyone who helps him as he returns it all to the community.  Uganda needs more of him.  You can contact Karim directly on Facebook or contact me to get his Masters Research Project which breathes only education as he lives and breathes it.

His next  assignment will be
