Naabaya Foundation, with great pleasure, would like to congratulate Ms. Aninyesi Hellen upon completing her studies with a diploma in Social Work and Social Administration from Team University.
Aninyesi Hellen aged 32 years , a South Sudanese national started her education journey in the year 2001 in Arua municipality, Uganda where she completed her primary level and later moved to Kampala to pursue her Ordinary level of education. She completed this level in 2010.
After her senior four, Hellen decided to get married. With more than four children, financial strains on her husbands side, life became so hard for her. She found a lot of difficulties in her marriage. So, with all these challenges, she decided to go back to school to proceed with her studies in order to make her dream come true and also be in position of supporting her five children in the near future.

With all the financial challenges limiting her from continuing with studies, Hellen decided to write a letter to Naabaya Foundation seeking tuition support.
Luckily enough, Naabaya Foundation was able to offer her a three year sponsorship one year for a certificate and the other two years for her diploma course, which she accomplished in 2023.

We therefore congratulate and appreciate you, Ms. Aninyesi Hellen, for not giving up in your studies even after starting up a family and having five children.

It’s the biochemical and physiological process by which an organism uses food to support it’s life.
It provides organisms with nutrients which can be metabolism to create energy and chemical structures.
Failure to obtain sufficient nutrients can lead to challenges in the body.

Nutrients are the good things that we get through good food which we need to nourish and nurture ourselves, and to be happy and healthy people. In scientific terms, nutrition is the supply of food that we need as an organism to feed our cell and keep them alive, we can get nutrients from products such as vitamins supplements, however when we talk about nutrition we mostly mean the nutrient we get from food.

Without nutrition, we grow weak, sick and at the very worst we can even die. We miss developmental milestones and can not put our bodies through the daily mental and physical tasks that we need them to. We are not able to grow and may also be unable to reproduce.
Nutrients are the fuel we need to enable the body to break down food.

The healthy human body needs seven different kinds of nutrients to thrive proteins, carbohydrates, fat, vitamins, minerals fibre and water. Macronutrients are the ones we need lots of while with micronutrients ( the vitamins and minerals) we can get by with a bit less vitamins are the most commonly known micronutrients which are essential organic compounds that the body needs to function.
