I joined URDT Girls School in 2004 in Primary 5 when I was 13yrs. My home then was in a poor situation, living in a grass thatched house, we had poor health, education and everything was not okay. The school helped our family to come-up with a vision of a good house, health, education and enough food. Through conducting numerous workshops, we managed to attain all what we wanted and now I completed my education with a diploma in Nursing and midwifery and am current working with URDT Cervical Cancer Project
Burora Sub County Women
After URDT sending an epicenter manager in our Sub County, us as women are benefiting a lot. For example in the past, we used to fear attending big gatherings, we could not associate with the educated people but with the intervention and education by our epicenter manager, we have learnt a lot like now we go to meetings and contribute our interests and we have a say.
Also in the past, even if a woman had money, she could not buy basic needs in a home but now we even pay for our children school fees.
Cervical Cancer Screening Testimony
I had information on the radio that was about the project that URDT is carrying out on cervical cancer screening, signs and symptoms and this team was to visit our health center 3. Given that i was already filling and experiencing some of these signs that were described on the radio, I had to visit the health center that day. The nurses screened me and I was found positive. They treated me and did follow ups all for free and now I feel okay.
Thanks to URDT.
