Ms. Uwimannah Annah Besigye, the Patron of KAB FOR KAB Initiative, expressed her gratitude for Chairman Daniel’s visionary leadership. She commended all members for their dedication and their willingness to embark on this essential journey. “Together, we can achieve the impossible,” she declared optimistically.

The Patron underscored the inclusivity of the initiative, mentioning that it would cater to students facing challenges in paying half or less of their tuition fees. To ensure accountability, a rigorous process would be put in place to identify genuine beneficiaries. Collaboration with the university’s finance office was also mentioned as a key element in ensuring transparency.

Ms. Besigye concluded her remarks by expressing her happiness for the birth of KAB FOR KAB Initiative, emphasizing that unity and collective effort would be the driving forces behind its success.”Kabale University students will be our beneficiaries,” Ms. Besigye affirmed, highlighting the initiative’s mission to assist students facing tuition challenges.

The KAB FOR KAB Initiative, which stands for “Kabale University for Kabale University,” aims to offer a helping hand to students struggling with tuition fees. With over 4,000 students at Kabale University, each contributing a nominal amount, the initiative aspires to raise seven million Uganda shillings every semester to support their fellow students.

To ensure the initiative’s longevity, strong strategies and measures have been put in place to identify deserving students. Class coordinators will also play a pivotal role in the efficient operation of the initiative.

In a heartfelt appeal, the initiative called upon the entire Kabale University community, including university management, student leadership, the guild body, and alumni, to join hands and make the dream of KAB FOR KAB a reality.

As the KAB FOR KAB Initiative sets sail, it carries with it the hope of countless students and the promise of a brighter, more inclusive future for all at Kabale University. Together, they are writing a story of unity, compassion, and limitless possibilities.
