credit:

Society has conditioned people to believe the only way one can have a worthy career in the formal sector is having a university degree.

Noeline Kirabo was fully sold on this conditioning until her dream of attaining a university degree was dashed by a family tragedy. Left with no choice, Kirabo went on a hunt for an alternative way to get legitimate certification into the formal sector but instead found her purpose that she now uses to make other disadvantaged youth's lives better.
