In a bid to curb the poor reading culture plaguing the youth in Uganda, United Bank for Africa(UBA) has embarked on a project dubbed read ‘Read Africa’ to equip students with literature.

On Friday last week, the UBA Fort Portal team led by the Head of Retail Banking, Paul Luyima donated 100 books to students of Fort Portal Secondary School, in Kabarole district. The title of the book donated was the famous ‘Things Fall Apart’, written by Chinua Achebe.

While addressing the students, Mr. Luyima advised, ‘The more we read, the more we acquire new knowledge, the quicker we get at solving complex problems, the better we understand each other, the more confident we get because we will be able to firmly engage in dialogue. You should never tire of reading, it only makes you a better person.’

The Read Africa project was initiated in 2011 by UBA Foundation, the arm of the bank charged with Corporate Social Responsibility(CSR). Read Africa has been rolled out across Africa with the goal of rekindling the dwindling reading culture amongst African youths.

UBA plans to donate books to schools across Uganda in all towns of operation. This week, Read Africa will be live in Mbale town.

In line with our ‘Customer First’ philosophy, we shall continue using technology to innovate products and services that empower customers and make banking more convenient.” said Johnson Agoreyo, CEO UBA Uganda.

LEO enables customers perform ordinary banking transactions such as account opening, funds transfer and airtime purchase while providing access to customer service on social media sites such as Facebook and Whatsapp.

Congratulating UBA Uganda on the award, Emeke E. Iweriebor, CEO UBA East and Southern Africa said, “Technology has remained central to United Bank for Africa’s business strategy, as we continue to enhance our product offering beyond brick and mortar locations, deploying lifestyle banking technology, to serve our customers.
