Defeating the Odds - Empower African Children

The odds have always been against Ugandan student Francis Lubuulwa.
In a country where only 4% of the population continues their education at a post-secondary or university level, he completely overcame the odds. On April 27, 2013, Empower scholar Francis Lubuulwa defeated all odds as he walked across the stage to receive his diploma from Pepperdine University. He not only finished his university education, a rare occurrence in his native Uganda, he graduated with a degree from a leading university in the U.S! Francis, who joined our Scholarship Program in 2007, is an extraordinary example for all Empower scholars of what's possible when they make the most of the opportunities provided for them. Francis didn't just walk through the doors that were opened for him, he ran through them. Some of his glowing accomplishments include receiving the Outstanding Communication Division Senior Award and co-founding the Pepperdine Microfinance Club, as well as serving as President of Taibah International School in Uganda. In an interview with the recent graduate, he explains his vision for his new career, his plans to move back to Uganda, and some advice for fellow Empower scholars.

2012 Francis Lubuulwa
When Francis was 10 years old his father died of AIDS. Two years later, he lost his stepmother and stepsister to the disease, and shortly after his mother found out she was HIV Positive. With insufficient funds to care for and educate Francis at home, Francis was sent to live in an orphanage in the Rakai district of southern Uganda. Francis joined Empower in 2006. Upon graduating high school in Uganda in 2008, where he was student body president, Francis was awarded a scholarship from Empower to study in the U.S. Francis is an exceptionally bright young man. Currently a Senior on full scholarship at Pepperdine University, Francis studies Organizational Communication and Industrial-Organizational Psychology. He is very involved on campus and serves as a wonderful spokesperson for Pepperdine. Many thanks, Francis Lubuulwa - Pepperdine University
