  1. My name is Fidele NELSON Kasaranga. I was born in DRC The Democratic Republic Of Congo and I’m a refugee in Uganda Nakival refugee camp. Disputes between my parents started the time I was born because my father accused my of giving birth to a ghost and bring cuse into the clan,
    My father disowned me by accusing my of having slept with other men or ghosts and this caused divorce, and this was because of my albinism condition I was born with even during the time I joined secondary school the number of friends kept on decreasing, where our neighbors never allowed their children to play with me I was always discriminated abandoned and isolated in societies, we started suffering until the time rebels attacked our community and we freed to Uganda in Nakival refugee camp and I happened to meet hundreds of people with albinism who are having the same pains as mine. Fortunately where I got to know about SINA Social Innovation Academy and I was trained on how to turn my problem into an opportunity and to empower my fellows with albinism but we’re setting up an Organization that is going to empower, inpire, motivate, and advocates for people with albinism living in the refugee camp through discovering, promoting their talents and adding on their literacy in order to become vital, valuable members in societies, and be able to fight for their rights and living a sustainable lives as well
