Bio
Narinda is a MasterCard scholar with a Bachelor’s Degree in commerce. During the four years of her program, she had the opportunity to work with two organizations as an intern (ministry of local government and the Planning and Development Department at Makerere) in pursuit of her career and passion for accounting. Makerere offered grants, to exercise her leadership skills as her class representative, finance minister and MasterCard scholars’ council representative of the MasterCard scholars at Makerere. The MasterCard program opened doors for her to meet other African scholars both on and off the continent, with a strong desire to transform the African continent. Her love for the community, giving back and social entrepreneurship then grew stronger and has been enriched and supported by MasterCard and partnering organizations like the African leadership academy and the Resolution Project. Narinda is currently working on a social venture project called Rabbit for Education, a venture aimed at reducing primary school dropouts in Kamwenge district, Uganda
