“I and my siblings would go and work with and for her whenever she was hired to decorate at an event. Through that engagement, I eventually learned the art of decoration,” he narrates.[6]

In December 2002, [1]while Bukenya was in his School vacation, his uncle from abroad sent self-help books to his mother. One of them was Robert Kiyosaki’s book, Rich Dad Poor Dad, which he read.

“The book had different incites on life; different from the principles I acquired in school.[4] My school always focused on academic excellence, not life skills. This book changed my understanding of life,” Bukenya says.

That marked Bukenya ‘s turning point in life!

The book made it clear that academic excellence was not a prerequisite for success in life.[1] Bukenya was so affected by this message that he did not want to continue with school, but rather briskly acquire a skill and get started on his entrepreneurship journey.

Barely out of his first year at university, he registered his first company, Image Care,[3] to deal in artistic portraits and plunged headlong into the world of business struggling with one challenge after another.[8]

Today, Image Care Limited has grown into a lucrative equipment-procuring and engineering solutions provider with projects worth $3m under their belt with business partners the world over.[1] It has 16 permanent employees.
