Onen created this fundraiser to honor and remember Dr. Ojok Julius, who passed away on Friday December 20, 2013.
Here's what Onen has to say about it:
In honor and to remember the late Dr. Ojok Julius who said ‘The higher you study the easier it is to earn a living.’ The tradition of taking women as the second class citizen is so common in Uganda. Even today most of the families would rather send a boy to school than a girl. The situation is even worst in the communities exemplified by early marriages of young girls, forced marriage, many girls enroll in primary one but very few complete the primary level of education. May his soul R.I.P
