I was privileged to participate in the lecture by Prof. Ezra Suruma, Chancellor of Makerere University on Revisiting Uganda’s Rural Development Strategy. The need to take services to the Parish using the Parish Model of Development was quite exciting. Thank you Prof. Suruma.
Attending First Service at St. Francis Chapel
At my first church service at St. Francis Chapel this morning, I have urged the congregation to reflect on the abundant natural gifts God had given Uganda and use the life, knowledge, brains and hands He has given each one of us, to bring our people out of poverty. I have also urged Ugandans to reduce politicking and put our trust in God.
Launching MAKNAI Solar-Powered Borehole Automation
It was a great pleasure to launch MAKNAI – a solar-powered pump which replaces the handheld pump for boreholes. This innovation by researchers from the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CAES) holds great potential for improving access to safe water as well as irrigation. I congratulate the team led by Dr. Nicholas Kiggundu.
Bidding Farewell to IYF Volunteers
Today I bid farewell to a group of young volunteers from the International Youth Foundation (IYF) who have been working in Uganda for close to two years. Makerere University values the collaboration with Korean organizations from which there is a lot to learn for the development of our country.
