“Armless” Ugandan Student, Didas Byaruhanga, Graduates From College


In the midst of the 6559 graduating students of Kyambogo University in Uganda, there is one student whose story is totally inspiring.

On the 27 of January, 2016, 25 year old Didas Byaruhanga, who has no arms and uses his feet to write, earned a degree in Adult and Community Education in spite of his obvious disability.

Didas Byaruhanga is a clear example of someone, who chose to defeat the stereotype. His story is a reminder that there is really no excuse for anyone to be a failure, regardless of the society we live in or the situation we are faced with.

We wish him the best as he continues to enhance his abilities even with his disability.
