Tracy Tekla Wanyama


Tracy is passionate about giving underprivileged children a chance to a normal life. She believes that children born into poverty, have little control over their wellbeing, health and education. It’s just a small percent of these children who manage to escape their circumstances and become economically successful adults, the majority don’t. It is therefore very unfortunate that in the present world, there are still millions of children whose probability of success is lowered simply by virtue of being born into certain circumstances.

Through HHU and its generous supporters, Tracy is working towards changing one life at a time, and hoping that one day, the world will become a better place for all. Tracy was born and raised in Eastern Uganda and immigrated to Canada in 2001. She is a Physician Assistant by profession, and outside her usual work, she spends most of her extra time spreading awareness, planning and coordinating fundraising activities for HHU
