Brian Wako, one of the HALO scholarship recipients, is looking forward to starting the next step in pursuing his medical degree! Nursing school will begin in August and he can’t wait to get started.
“Of course I am excited! I keep getting closer and closer to my dream to be a medical doctor”
Brian graduated from Makerere home in December and will be spending the summer working at the HALO Learning Center here in Uganda.
“My brothers are looking forward to seeing me again. I want to volunteer my time so that I can be close to them and help them study to have a chance to find their dreams like I do. I am so lucky to have this chance and I want them to be lucky too.”
As a member of a HALO home since 2003, Brian expressed that he is passionate about staying close to the homes and the kids he grew up with. His job will be to oversee the operations of the learning center while also running fun and educational programs for the kids to participate in on a weekly basis.
HALO is so excited that Brian will be serving as a role model for our youth to look up to. He is truly succeeding in becoming a contributing member of his community by pursuing a career as a doctor while mentoring other youth to pursue their goals.
