|Bio and Background||
Amos grew up in the village of Buna in the current day Bududa district of Uganda, one of fourth children. Unlike most parents there, my father, who had a seventh grade education, knew how to read. He collected books and encouraged us children to listen to the radio and learn about the larger world. my father taught me and my siblings the value of an education.
Every morning Amos and his siblings awoke at 4 a.m. to work in the fields and then headed to school at 7 a.m. Sometimes the headteacher there turned them away publicly because they didn’t have money for their school fees, but my father kept telling us to go back. After finishing chores in the evening, the family usually read books around a kerosene candle.
Whenever one of us came first in their class, the whole family celebrates with gifts, such as bread from 30 miles away and a cooked chicken for dinner. These were major incentives, and I learned to hope and dream for more……….)
After I completed primary school, he went to a secondary boarding school 160 miles away, as my older sister had done. Carrying their suitcases on their heads, Amos and my siblings would walk this distance through treacherous forests that held wild animals and armed bandits every beginning of school term, and then back home at the end of the term because they had no money for transportation. But they were determined never to give up. Amos focused on his studies while my father sold land, produce, and sometimes even their own furniture to pay his sons’ school fees. Amos never wanted to disappoint his unselfish father.
After successfully finishing secondary school, I was admitted to a free, government-run university and earned an degree . After a few years of work in Uganda and further studies in Australia on sponsorship, I eventually found his way to America
Looking back, I feels like “a guiding hand led me through all the upheavals of my childhood.” I sought to help village children and poor communities follow in their footsteps and also to make those steps easier to take. A Harlon school aspires to be a guiding hand to scores of eager, young learners from community and beyond.

|What would you like people to know about your community?||
much as I know, Uganda is reaching a stage where only the rich can attain education even if the government started up the Universal primary and secondary education to cater for the poor children. Here am referring to good quality education not the staled education syllabuses in most of the government and cheap schools in Uganda.
A poor Ugandan child barely goes to school, for the few that have the chance to go have faced several challenges that even forced some of them to drop out.
What a weary time it is for the poor children in Uganda, having the desire and need to go to school, but not the ability, we really need to pick them up and support their education, or else, in their later days, they are innocently going to face the consequences of illiteracy that they didn’t cause to themselves but rather we the reluctant public that didn’t take concern about their education.
I want people to know and may we can find durable solutions for my commmunities……
|Advancing the DREAM - What it means to me||
To me this means force forHealth is everlasting solution to Ugandans health problems, note that Uganda is considered as a ‘hot spot’ for emerging and re-emerging infectious disease epidemics. The country has experienced several epidemics including; Ebola, Marburg, plague, Rift Valley fever, yellow fever and Crimean Congo haemorrhagic fever.and other sicknessess, Epidemics overwhelm health systems, devastate economies and cause global health insecurity. These public health challenges arising from lack of health information, FORCEFORHEALTH has holistic approach referred to as force for health awareness. FORCEFORHEALTH is the collaborative effort of multiple health disciplines educators working locally, nationally, and globally, to attain optimal health for people, and the environment.
Given its situation, Uganda has embraced the the approach in order to be able to predict, prepare and respond to these public health challenges effectively, though still in infancy stages…………….
