Sawa Leader Shares His Story
Sawa Youth Reporter, Jude, has been documenting the work of Sawa Leader, Dr. Robert in Uganda over the last few months. The videos produced by Jude, and other Sawa Youth Reporters, help spread the solutions of the Sawa Leaders to surrounding communities on a continual basis.
Growing up as an orphan in rural Uganda, Dr. Robert was inspired to help others through the same hardships he encountered as a youth. The orphans of today, Dr. Robert states in his most recent Sawa World “Story Video”, have the potential to become the presidents or doctors of tomorrow. Robert also speaks of the initial struggles he had when starting a clinic for victims of HIV/AIDS. Today, it has developed to be much more than just a place to receive basic health care. His Life Care Centre provides invaluable training for youth health workers and assistance for families through the income generation project. "A program should live beyond its founder," Robert says in his “Tips Video”. He adds, "To achieve this, an organization must have a clear vision that can be passed onto other members and the community." Through Dr. Robert efforts and many volunteers his vision of the Centre has grown strong and found many approaches to help improve the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS.
