Hello! My name is Teven Kibumba. Allow me to share my story with you about my background, educational journey and experience with the society in which I work as a social worker and journalist for a good cause.
To be born into a needy and illiterate family. –
I studied in Nakanyonyi primary school before enrolling in my normal level at Wakitaka SS. After completing my O level studies, I went to Jinja Progressive SS and in 2013 I enrolled for a bachelor’s degree in Mass Communication from Kampala University.
However, my educational journey was not at all easy.
I studied without scholastic material; food, clothing and this constantly developed the spirit of charity. Such a situation not only affects my overall educational experience but has also subjected me to the torments of child labor.
And because there was no one to monitor and guide us properly, the struggle to survive as a child was the only solution. So many members of the community were concerned, but few had the spirit and love for charity.
In 2016 I completed my degree in Mass Communication at Kampala University. Thanks to GOD and Glory be to God for this achievement.
I currently work at HFCA & NBS TV as an Executive Director of HFCA and a news correspondent for NBS TV in the Busoga region.
SUCCESSFUL STORY TREND …
So one day while working on my news coverage at Iganga hospital, I was approached by a lady known as Hasifa Namugaya who told me she was a widow.
Namugaya, a resident of Kaweete in Namungalwe Sub County, Iganga, had a baby daughter. The child was born with a health complication that deformed her face and she needed 20 million UGX to be taken for plastic surgery outside the country, that touched my soul and spurred me on to do something.
After interacting with the child, I felt compassion and could not resist helping this innocent child. However, in order to garner support for the little one and also generate enough financial support from the public, I mobilized friends to perform for this charity.
During our charities we were late when we met the rise of helping this little one because after that she died.
The formation of Hope for Change Africa (HFCA) in short…
After taking on the challenge of losing the life of this innocent child Shifrah, fellow co-workers arrived at my office very early in the morning after a 1 week period during which everyone felt moved about the incidence that had happened before. From then on, as colleagues, we decided to consider charity our longevity project “
The idea was to reach out to the unfortunate ones in the community, as they were in number and had no visibility in terms of charity.
The idea was welcomed and Hope for Change Africa was born.
