Monica Nampala

Monica is a student at Makerere University currently pursuing her Master’s degree in Social Work. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Community Psychology and Psychotherapy from Lira University in 2019.

She has previously worked with Teach for Uganda as a teacher, as a Clinical Administrator for Good Care Medical Centre, and volunteered as a Psychologist at Uganda’s biggest public hospital, Mulago National Referral Hospital.

Monica is very passionate about serving people and empowering the marginalized to use their resources and gain control of their lives to their full potential.  After graduating with her Bachelor’s degree, she hoped to play a teaching role in her career as a Psychologist. She volunteered at Mulago National Referral Hospital as a Psychologist for 4 months in the
Department of Mental Health. Because of my love for creating better educational outcomes for underserved children in rural communities, she joined Teach for Uganda’s Leadership Fellowship in a Fellow role.

She supports primary children in UPE schools by teaching them how to read, write and above all acquire life and vocational skills that will create better life outcomes for them. She employs her excellent communication and interpersonal skills plus knowledge in mental health in order to carry out this role.
