UCU Guild Leadership contributed over 980,000 shillings to buy foodstuff for students who remained in hostels due to the lockdown.

The Guild leadership of Uganda Christian University (UCU) has taken a step forward in service delivery by sacrificing their allowances to mobilize funds intended to purchase relief items especially foodstuffs for a section of students in need.

Out of their July and August 2021 guild allowances, they have contributed over 980,000 shillings to buy foodstuff for students who remained in hostels due to the lockdown. Some of the students are from neighboring countries.

“We agreed to sacrifice these allowances to feed our colleagues who remained in hostels due to unavoidable circumstances,” said Guild President Kenneth Agaba Amponda.

The guild Officials developed a Google list which they shared with students to ensure transparency in their selection.

About Uganda Christian University.

Uganda Christian University (UCU) is an authentic Christian institution established by the Church of Uganda in 1997 in response to a call for quality university education with a Christian perspective.
Uganda Christian University replaced the historic Bishop Tucker Theological College which trained clergy and educators during its 84-year history from 1913-1997. The local chief, Hamu Mukasa, granted land for the college to operate in Mukono.

International partnerships were part of the Bishop Tucker Theological College’s missionary history. The Church Mission Society teamed up with Ugandan leaders and others to assure the College had the necessary intellectual and other capital.
By the late 1990s, the Church of Uganda sought to have a broader impact on society through university education – not only educating clergy but other professionals as well. In 2004, UCU became the first private university to be chartered or accredited by the government of Uganda.
Located in Mukono, less than an hour’s drive from the capital city Kampala, Uganda Christian University is one of Uganda’s leading teaching and research universities.
