Ed. Note: In 2010 Ms. JD launched the Global Education Fund to enable women in developing countries to pursue legal educations who otherwise would not have access to further education. Ms. JD International Scholars are being supported by the GEF's grants to Makerere University in Uganda. Each year, the Ms. JD Global Education Fund has made it possible for two more young Ugandan women to pursue their dreams of becoming lawyers by attending the law program at Makerere University!

Patience Winnie Apai is a 2012 Ms. JD International Scholar in her 2nd year at Makerere University in Uganda thanks to the Global Eduction Fund. A message from Patience:
I greet you all in the name of our Lord. I would like to convey my great gratitude to you for the help you provided to me. I thank God for you because if it were not for you I do not know whether I would ever realize university education. I really thank God for you and may he bless the work of your hands.
I am back for another semester in a new Academic year. I am now in my second year of study and offering five course units; Nature and history of Torts, Law of evidence I, Foundations of land law, Administrative law II and Equity and Trusts.
I have been fine generally though with a few challenges here and there. During the holidays I used to attend court and as a result I have got familiar with what I study in class. It was a good practice because I was able to interact with various advocates/lawyers and even the magistrates. They encouraged me to work hard and stick to my goals. I would love to become an advocate in future and also contribute to the judicial activities in my country to see to it that justice is being done. Otherwise I thank you once again for the help you render to us. You are a great asset to us. God bless you.
