The Rose Namayanja Foundation in partnership with Uganda’s Development Community Caring Friends (UDCCF), yesterday donated an assortment of essential items to students in Kapeeka Sub-county, Nakaseke District.
While handing over the donation, Rev Fr Emmanuel Mbalire, the UDCCF Executive Director, said that the donation was aimed at enabling students concentrate on their studies by no longer worrying about the lack of basic scholastic materials.
“Students always spend a lot of valuable time worrying about the things they lack in schools. We decided to partner with the Rose Namayanja Foundation in order to extend a helping hand to the under privileged students for them to reach their full academic potential,” Rev Fr Mbalire said.
The items that included scholastic materials, sanitary pads, clothes, shoes among others, were handed over to the beneficiary schools of Standard High School Kapeeka, Kapeeka Senior Secondary School and Kapeeka Primary School in Nakaseke District.
Rev Fr Mbalire appealed to the beneficiaries to concentrate on their studies and work hard towards achieving academic excellence. He called on them to build their self-confidence while also believing in God to work in their favor.
“Discipline is the key that leads to success, learn how to respect people and always be disciplined students. Believe in yourself and always care for one another, learn to be smart in everything you do,
UDCCF and RNF will continue to appreciate and recognize students who excel in both academics and co-curricular activities.” He added.
On his part, Mr Joseph Munyangabo, the Rose Namayanja Foundation CEO called upon the students to turn every challenge faced in school, into an opportunity to work harder. This he said, will go a long way in building their self-drive that will enable them achieve good grades in school.
“Use the little you have in order to achieve more, this is not the last time we are coming here. Every time we come here, we shall bring a package for you (students) and the community,” Mr. Munyangabo said.
Munyangabo said that the Rose Namayanja Foundation was committed to empowering both the students and community through various outreaches. He pledged on behalf of the foundation to continue working with various organizations in order to serve the community.
