Adochi is an alumnus and on the Refugees for prosperity Program experience’ has successfully grown her dream of owning a school into reality. Currently, she is on the business incubator program experience.
“I was employed as a teacher in the Capital city Kampala for some time but my dream was to start my own school. I used to tell myself if I got capital, I would start my own school. I talked to my Daddy who asked me how much I had saved. I had $136.06 on which my father topped up money and bought this piece of land on which the school structure is”
With the help of her sisters, Adochi ventured into bricklaying. She hired people to bake the bricks which she used to construct the first-class structure. And the origin of the school name: Good Daddy Nursery School due to undying support of her father. “I used to go to the market and churches and would put posters on trees in the community. My first enrollment was 43 children in 2017. I am in the process of registration with the district and sub-county and I have made myself know with both offices. I started with one classroom and currently added a new classroom. I have baby and middle class respectively.”
Adochi joined the Refugees for prosperity program experience in 2018 through an awareness poster in her community She picked interest and ever since she says she has learnt a lot from record keeping, how to manage customers and learnt new marketing strategies. She says, “I changed my approach on marketing my school. This year I gave a free registration offer to the first 20 children to be registered to enroll since most parents are peasant farmers” Am aware of the changes in the syllabus and curriculum, she has invested in learning and has attended a training organized by Wezesha Impact in Gulu.
