“We  always do such activities based on our statistics/findings as well as well as the needs in various communities.” Nyabongo clarified

He further added that having more ladies in church and Rotary is a sign that its a sign of their unending love towards having a better community. “So you have alot of work to bring us men on board to work with you in ensuring sustainable development and peaceful community.”

Diana Kateeba the Bugolobi Rotary Club President BugolobiStanbic revealed that they decided to support Kahunga Bunyonyi Primary School following its bad state which in the end may affect the learning of the children.

“The Classrooms are not enough and classes are being separated by curtains , one of the toilet got full which led to both teachers and students to share one toilet which is so unusual.” Kateeba noted
She added that there is a high school dropout for boys who end up on Marijuana farms as casual labourers and this jeopardizes their future as well as the future of their communities.
“We are grateful for the ED commiting this money , i know very well that this contribution will have a tremendous contribution towards the lives of children in that school.”
