For many refugees, education means finding a career and financial success, often never returning to the roots where they struggled as children. An activist for education since an early age, Joseph Munyambanza has taken a different path. Born in the Democratic Republic of Congo, he fled to Uganda at age 6 with his family. A Mastercard Foundation scholar, Joseph graduated from Westminster in 2015 and has since returned to Uganda.
He was featured on Aug. 18, 2017 by PBS Newshour for his life-changing work in meeting the education needs of South Sudanese refugee children in Uganda. Watch the story above.
