Meanwhile, Reach Out Mbuya Parish HIV/AIDS Initiative realised UGX26,158,600 from the 2019 Charity run. This money has been added to the balance from the previous marathons and donation box collections to plan for the next two years.
A total of UGX91,673,664 has been fully allotted to take care of 65 vulnerable children for the academic years 2020 and 2021 giving as many an opportunity as possible. ROM is saddened by the fact that many children will be left out, however we will continue to seek more support including identifying credible schools willing to offer scholarships and individuals/organizations to take up more.
ROM highly congratulates these teenagers who have come a long way looking at the complex environment within which they live and study. We are awaiting results of seven students registered for Uganda Advanced Certificate Examination 2019.
