dfcu Bank has made a contribution of Shs75 million towards the refurbishment of a three-classroom block at Nakivubo Blue Primary School. This is part of the bank’s Corporate Social Responsibility Program.
The school is currently managed by the Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) and has over 1,000 students from the surrounding Owino Market and Kisenyi areas.
The announcement was made during a press conference at the KCCA offices on Tuesday.
The school which is located in downtown Kampala is one of the oldest primary schools in Kampala district.
Overtime, its physical condition has deteriorated which has had a negative impact on its academic standards.
Speaking during the announcement, William Sekabembe, dfcu Bank’s Executive Director and Head of Business said the contribution was part of the Bank’s efforts to improve the lives of the communities in which it operates.
“Our Corporate Social Responsibility program is centered around a number of pillars which include; Child and Maternal Health, Environmental Management, Community Development and Emergency Intervention,” Sekabembe said.
“Under these pillars, dfcu Bank has supported a number of initiatives which we believe have significantly improved the welfare of the communities and organizations to whom they are given. Our belief is that the communities in which we operate should benefit from more than our services and products- which is why we support projects that are sustainable and whose impact will reach several members of that community,” he added.
KCCA Executive Director, Jennifer Musisi applauded dfcu Bank for making an investment whose benefits will extend to countless members of the Owino and Kisenyi communities- over a significant period of time.
