Patrick's story

Patrick was born in Amerikwa Village in Teso South. He is married and has a family. Patrick has been involved in a small-scale motorcycle business for four years in Busia town, close to the border between Kenya and Uganda. Patrick wants to own a motorcycle to support the community health work in his community and make a difference and expand his micro business as well. Patrick will link with a Community Health Worker (CHW) working in his community and will support the community health worker by providing transport on set days. This will give much-needed capacity to the CHW to be able to reach many more families during counseling appointments and health visits. Patrick hopes to recruit other members of his small business organization to join in supporting community health outreach programs in Teso community. Patrick will also use the income generated from his motorcycle taxi business to support his family. He hopes to become a CHW volunteer in his community.
