Edrine becomes a doctor

EDRINE IS BECOMING A DOCTOR - WE WANT TO SUPPORT

Edrine Were is 19 years old. Born in Kabalagala he grew up at the Sosolya Undugu Dance Academy. He is a talented dancer and drummer and has an ambitious aim: He wants to become a doctor. Edrine wants to help his brothers and sisters at the centre and the people from Kabalagala, the slum and his neighbourhood. He wants to give something back, that is his biggest wish.

In school Edrine was very ambitious and hardworking. When other children recovered from their hard dancing training he was reading books. Edrine graduated very well and was rewarded: He was admitted at Jinja Medical School, just while he was on tour in Germany with the KinderKulturKarawane 2017.

Edrine started studying in October 2017. The fees are very expensive: 675 Euro for each semester. Edrine’s family cannot pay the fees fees and there is no public support for poor students in Uganda. But we can help!
