Ivan Bukesa, Get Up Stand up project
I am Ivan Bukesa, born to Enid Nankya and Fredrick Sentongo residents of Luweero ,I grew
up with my mother until the age of 10 years and she took me to Nandere seminary where I grew up from there.
In the seminary, the priests used to help the needy in the community most especially children and
women. This is where I learnt a character of supporting the vulnerable people and when I joined Nnina
olugero foundation as a volunteer in Get Up stand up project ,I felt home because I was given another
opportunity to serve as a social worker.
Currently am the project manager of Get up stand up project ,I do plans and lays structures for the
project and to see that the project activities move on well in the field in order to full fill the aims and
I have witnessed a huge transition of cultures and attitudes among the youth in communities due to
activities done by the project and this inspired me to continue working as a team in the organization
I have achieved new skills and knowledge since I joined Nnina Olugero foundation. I thank the founder
and the funders of the Nnina olugero foundation.
