Cate Nimanya is the Country Director for Water for People in Uganda, born in Uganda and raised there, she was very fortunate that her parents made sure that she gets an education. Life must have been really hard for Cate and her friends, firstly being a girl in Uganda and secondly the condition for living must not be the best. I read that Cate had to wake up as early as 5am to collect water first before walking to school at 7am. And in order not to get their uniform dirty, they had to take them out 50 meters away from school because of the filthy toilets.
Life didn’t get any easier for Cate but she did manage to finish university and further her studies in Netherland after which she got married and had a child. She could have stop and just stayed home but Cate chose to work in the mission to bring clean water to the people of Uganda and even though she has 3 children and a career, Cate is up for any challenges.
