Success Stories2020 NexStep Scholar of the Year: Baraka

By the age of 20, Baraka had faced more difficulties than many will see in their lifetime. After war broke out and claimed some of his family in his birthplace, the Democratic Republic of Congo, he and his remaining family members migrated to Uganda. Though life was not favorable there, his parents worked hard to provide for Baraka and his siblings and always stressed the importance of education by making sure he attended school.
