    I am so grateful to the government of Uganda and Coursera for the initiative aim at reskilling the Ugandan workforce. I Am a physics teacher by profession teaching at Nyondo Secondary School. When this opportunity appeared, enrolled in python programming language and I have completed this self-paced course today. The course was and has added value to my teaching career. I still call upon the Government through the ministry of ICT to continue providing such opportunities to Ugandans so as to acquire skills that can move our country forward in this innovative world. In case of any other opportunity, I am will to proceed to the next level. I also implore all Ugandans to take up such offers once they unfold for their own good.

    For God and my Country
