CONGRATULATIONS BARNABAS !

We are excited to share with the rest of the HLD fraternity news coming in from Kyambobogo University around the recently held Guild Elections.

One of our own took up the challenge and emerged a winner and now a duly elected GRC representing his college.

Barnabas went through our leadership mentorship program while at Halcyon High School Soroti where he served as head prefect and later on as the Vice President of Agriculture Students Association in Year one at Kyambobogo University.

Following yesterday's Elections, he will now go on to serve as a Guild Representative for his Faculty.
We wish Barnabas as well as all the other alumni who participated in University Elections and won, success in their terms of office.

We also congratulate other comrades who vied for various offices and didn't make it, remember leadership is influence. Even without a political office, we still have something to do about our communities and country.

CELEBRATING OUR ALUMNI (Tooro Region - Fortportal)

Hello HLD family and readers,

lam Karungi Esther Desire a Ugandan 21 years old a student at Mountains of the Moon university Fortportal. I am pursuing Bachelors of Business administration.
My leadership has been a call from the almighty God. Right away from the beginning I didn't like leadership, thought it a "dirty thing". I was hesitant about leading others and feared criticism. Leadership is from God.
The biggest lesson I learnt from HLD is that the essence of great leadership is influence not authority.

I joined HLD at St Maria Gorreti Girls SSS Fortportal. I started leadership seriously in senior one as a counselor and senior three I was appointed as women affairs. This post made me test the meaning of leadership at school. Leadership is not a position or title it is action and example. By then I was not a leader because I was not exemplary and my actions were not showing any leadership values. Not knowing that the journey was yet to begin.

Later, in my Advanced level of education I was appointed Chairperson school Council. Representing my school SMG at the District Council as an Assistant Secretary. I certainly could not make it alone HLD team was supportive in numerous ways, especially when I was a chairperson with lots of demanding responsibility. They my source of encouragement, learning and support.

Through the HLD Leadership Conferences, I was able to learn more about leadership, meet with other student leaders from different regions, tribes, and cultures as well as build friendships with other student leaders across the country.
You can never be a good leader without being guided or mentored, we need to commit ourselves to a few friends who challenge us to be better.

My gratitude goes to the HLD team for all the efforts they put towards student leadership mentorship particularly Kiplangat Francis, our Tooro regional Coordinator, and mentor.
As a leader, I learned that you can be the voice of people when you are honesty and exemplary to people you lead. Integrity is one of the lessons I have learned from HLD that virtue is so sensitive in our everyday life.

Currently, I am a student in the university and the lessons I learnt from HLD are helping me to face the challenges associated with campus life. Through HLD, I was taught and nurtured to be proactive in dealing with life seasons and situations, especially challenging ones. The true test of leadership is how you will function in a crisis.

I wish the HLD team could keep extending their services every part of this country as far as youth leadership is concerned.

Long Live HLD.

Karungi Esther Desire.

CELEBRATING OUR ALUMNI, (Northern Uganda - Gulu).

Hello reader,

I am OKUMU DANIEL, an HLD alumni from Sir Samuel Baker Gulu.

I started my leadership journey way back in primary where I served as the Head boy of Layoko p/s in Omoro District, Head boy of Kitinotima p/s in Gulu district. Later, I joined Awere Secondary in Omoro District for O’Level where I was an Assistant timekeeper in s.1, Timekeeper head a year after, Library prefect head in s.3 and chief advisor.

In 2016, I joined Sir Samuel Baker School for A ‘Level where I got introduced to HLD and I joined it with pleasure when I was serving as the Head Prefect, Club president Educate, Chairperson Debating Club, and Treasurer Scripture Union.
Leadership is quite challenging to people but me that wasn’t and isn’t the case. Since I joined HLD, I learned how everyone can exercise leadership in their own ways since leadership is not all about positions, Vision and purpose which helped me in developing my vision and sense of purpose in life, Personal integrity which has helped me to stand on the right side on ethical issues and to be clear in what I value and stand for as a leader, making vital relationships and long-lasting and intentional friendships.

On the other side, in our bi-weekly small group lessons, I learned how to socialize freely with other people, the value of teamwork which eases tasks as well as gave me a chance to easily identify my strengths and weakness from my small group members.

Currently, I am a mentor with Educate Uganda and a teacher in making at Gulu University, doing a Bachelor of Business Education. I also serve in leadership positions such as a Weekday’s representative for the Faculty of Education and Humanities, Faculty representative for the UN Association of Uganda Gulu university chapter, Committee member of National Foreign Affairs Gulu University, and Deputy Leader of Opposition Students Parliament Gulu University. I am also a peer trainer for Gulu University in Safer University Project.
I am working hard to be an Entrepreneur and Educator, also hoping that one day I will represent my constituency in Parliament.

The world that we see today and the world that we want to see tomorrow is our responsibility.

I thank God that I am part of HLD and may He bless Cornerstone, and all the Alumni.

CELEBRATING OUR ALUMNI (Northern region - Gulu)

Hello reader,

I am Onenchan Moses from Northern Uganda.
My leadership journey started back at Okule Primary School, Oyam district where I served as a timekeeper at primary five, and a class representative for primary six.

I later joined senior one at Bishop Angelo Negri college (Gulu) in the year 2011. Two years later, I was elected as the dormitory captain for senior three fraternities. In the year of 2015, I was democratically elected in the position of Chairmanship for the Uganda National Student's Association (UNSA) and doubled as the Finance Secretary for UNSA at the school level. In the same year at the district level, I was elected as the Finance Minister Uganda National Student's Association (UNSA) for Gulu district during UNSA handover!

In life, you may be holding positions of power or interact with people who have been appointed into such positions, but the reality is that leadership doesn't come from positions. Everyone is a leader in their own capacities. As this is not enough, being a real leader, one must work within lines of trustworthiness, credibility, respect of people, and be exemplary.

When I joined HLD, the program that made me much stronger in leadership, the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People was and is still very impactful in my life journey. I also had an opportunity to attend the Vision Conference in 2016 (Hosted at Rubaga Girls) after my final UACE exams.

The HLD program greatly contributed to my leadership strength during the entire time I joined the initiative. Through its core values, I learned to be a person with vision and purpose, be exemplary in life for others, and be self-aware. In our small group sessions and lessons, I got to know God better, I have been supported and encouraged by my friends, I got new friends and I got to know myself better.

My vision is to help people in my community that are in most cases not aware of the laws and have been unjustly treated in courts of law, where many have ended up losing their land. I want to be their voice come that time, and I have always worked hard towards getting there.

I am also happy to share with you all that, I am a lawyer in making at Gulu University who was also vehemently elected as the Student’s Guild representative by the student fraternity of Law Faculty for the academic year of 2020/2021.

A vote of thanks to Cornerstone and HLD for the tremendous efforts towards mentoring a new breed of African leaders. God bless you all

CELEBRATING OUR ALUMNI - EASTERN UGANDA (Teso Region - Soroti)

Hello reader,

I am Patrick Okello, a mentor with Educate! A Ugandan Organization, a passionate young leader and entrepreneur with much interest in inspiring young people.
I am a former student of Teso College Aloet (2017/18) where I had my A’ level studies. While there, I was involved in various leadership roles including the following;
- Chairperson UNSA, Soroti District Secretariat
- Vice Chairperson UNSA
- President, Educate Club
- Vice President, Debate club
- Speaker, Human rights, and Peace club among others.

It’s these leadership roles that provided an opportunity for me to join the High School Leadership Development Initiative (HLD). I learned a lot about leadership especially the kind of leadership modeled after the values of transformational Servant leadership in the way of Jesus. This includes the four core leadership values of HLD, such as Vision and Purpose which has enabled me to stay focused on achieving my personal goals, Personal integrity which has enabled me to keep up with my good personal principles at all times, Unity and reconciliation which has enabled me to be at peace with the people around me and also a problem solver in case of any conflicts and Personal relationships which enabled me to identify important political, economic and social networks and utilize them to achieve my vision which is "To be a great youth activist in line with youth empowerment and development"

It's this vision that keeps me motivated about leadership in all aspects of my life, starting with my family, workplace and I intend to motivate more youths to start businesses for sustainable growth and development of their communities. I encourage youth to also take up leadership roles in their communities to be influential and drive positive change in society.

In conclusion, I want to thank HLD for all they have taught me through all the conferences, retreats, and small group sessions, it’s because of these that I count myself as an inspiration to the young generation.

Thank you and long live HLD.

A CALL FOR VALUES-BASED LEADERSHIP (A story of humility, kindness and integrity)

Kenyan runner Abel Mutai was just a few feet from the finish line, but became confused with the signage and stopped, thinking he had completed the race.

A Spanish runner, Ivan Fernandez, was right behind him and, realizing what was happening, started shouting at the Kenyan to continue running. Mutai didn't know Spanish and didn't understand. Realizing what was taking place, Fernandez pushed Mutai to victory.

A journalist asked Ivan, "Why did you do that?" Ivan replied, "My dream is that someday we can have a kind of community life where we push and help each other to win."
The journalist insisted "But why did you let the Kenyan win?" Ivan replied, "I didn't let him win, he was going to win. The race was his."

The journalist insisted, and again asked, "But you could have won!" Ivan looked at him and replied, "But what would be the merit of my victory? What would be the honor in that medal?
What would my Mother think of that?"

Values are passed on from generation to generation.

What values are we teaching our children?

Let us not teach our kids the wrong ways and means to WIN.
Instead, let us pass on the beauty and humanity of a helping hand. Because honesty and ethics are WINNING!

Members, each of us are in some sort of race, a push from you will make us jointly win. God bless you.

HLD wishes you a blessed new month a head, July !
