‘I will not forget the procurement of a car for CCEDU. I was among the procurement committee. It was such an amazing experience for me at FHRI having to exercise procurement knowledge of a capital asset practically.’-

I enjoyed attending to clients. It helped me realise that there are people in need of these legal services and yet they cannot afford them. This inspired me to get involved in Public interest Litigation
Going to court for mitigation introduced me to the kind of law I want to specialise in for my future career.

I feel very honored to have had the opportunity to intern at FHRI and at the same time sad that I am leaving. I have gained so much during the time I'm here. Everyone has been helpful and friendly, and the work has been really fulfilling. I look forward to coming back to Uganda and perhaps continuing to contribute to FHRI in whatever capacity I'm able to from Canada.
