Okay, let me explain. – Advertisement – Back in 1999 in South Western Uganda, a small crowd of young boys camped outside a little room about half the size of the classrooms on either side. If it had been in 2016 you would think that #SteadyProgress was “serving gravy”! Entry into the computer lab was more competitive than actually getting into Ntare School at S1. Ms Mwebaza, as her students called her back then, was the custodian of the lab, and the internet. Never mind that it was dialup, measured in Kilo bytes.Whereas many of the boys were content with playing games, Albert and Joshua wanted more. Fortunately, Ms Mwebaza not only accommodated their curiosity and occasional mischief, but also encouraged and facilitated them. Their journey with computers and technology really kicked off under the watchful eye and gently guidance of Ms Mwebaza. Ms Mwebaza has over the years inspired and mentored many of the leading techies that you see today.Nominate a lady who’s changing the face of technology in your community, organization or in your own life and celebrate their achievements.
