Kashemire will be a great computer engineer!

Kashemire as an adult today!
Kashemire as an adult today!

Kashemire, a newly graduated senior six student, always loved science. Until she discovered Nyaka’s Robotics Club, she wasn’t able to apply her scientific knowledge outside the classroom.

The Robotics Club allowed Kashemire to turn her scientific interests into job-friendly skills! After joining the club, she learned skills such as electrical wiring and computer programming.

Now Kashemire can combine her critical thinking abilities with her technical skills to help her community. Kashemire recognized that the understaffed, overcrowded local hospitals were struggling to provide adequate care for patients. To help reduce preventable deaths, the students created a hospital bed that automatically distributes IV medications.

This invention is clearly beneficial especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2018, Kashemire competed with the club in a national robotics competition. Nyaka WON against other secondary and university schools!

Kashemire has successfully passed her national exams and is currently in the process of applying for college and waiting for admission. Her success with the Robotics Club has encouraged her to study computer engineering, Kashemire writes, “After school, I hope to start a give back project in my community. I hope to offer free computer training to the young girls and boys of Nyakagyezi. We are living in a digital world where everything is yet to be computerized. Enriching the young community with these skills will help them be creative and explore all avenues of technology.”

With the education and hands-on experience in tech innovation that you have helped to provide her, Kashemire is confident (and we are too) she’ll be a great computer engineer!
