“I DON’T KNOW HOW I GOT SO LUCKY, BUT NOW, I WANT TO EXTEND MY LUCK AS FAR AS I CAN BACK INTO MY COMMUNITY.” - Dennis Okwera

Dennis Okwera is a model, activist, actor, and founder of Lumule Foundation, a charity to empower children through education by building and expanding schools devastated by war.

“My last memories of Lumule were running to hide in bushes almost three times a day”

Lumule Primary School was Dennis’s first school. “I used to study beneath the shade of a tree which still grows to this day”, he says.

But, due to the rebels frequently attacking his village, looting houses, kidnapping children, and burning homes down, he was often taken on the run to hide in the bushes by his teachers until it was safe to return to the village.
