Aisha Nabukeera is among the 1024 students who are graduating today at Mukono based Uganda Christian University (UCU).

Nabukeera is graduating with a Bachelors Degree in Social Work and Social Administration (SWASA).

She came into the lime light in 2006 when her plight was brought to the general public’s attention by social entrepreneur and motivational speaker Frank Gashumba.

At that time, Nabukeera was said to be rotting in her father’s house in Masaka, a district in southern Uganda after her step mother allegedly lit her up in flames with a dress fully soaked in petrol a deadly fuel.

After the incident, Gashumba took her on as her foster father and has been living with her and taking care of her.
