16 teams will be going for glory and several other revealers will be going for fun and entertainment when the 5 on 5 charity games make a return in a much bigger venue at Kabira Country Club on July 7th, 2019.

Hosted by a youth led charity organisation called Draw A Smile Uganda, the games will include a five aside football set up among other games such as dodge ball (kwepena), board games, video games, yoga among others.

According to former WBS TV personality Sasha Ferguson who doubles as the founder of Draw A Smile Uganda, the games are targeting youths and corporate firms to have fun while networking and contributing to charity.

She says that all the proceeds collected from the 5 on 5 games will go towards facilitating their menstrual hygiene teaching campaign called #LetsTalkPeriods where they intend to teach over 2000 girls in Jinja on the dangers of poor menstrual hygiene and also teach them on how to make reusable sanitary towels.

“We started the 5 on 5 games last year as a way of fundraising for our charity campaigns. We found out that this is a better way of making everyone to participate in our charity drives since people can have fun, network and yet contributing to charity,” She said.

Sixteen teams will vie for the 5on5 football tournament and each team has to register with the organisation with Ugshs 150,000. While those that want to participate in other games like kwepena, video games, boards and others will only pay Ugshs. 5,000 at the entrance.

She says that there will be lots of cash prizes to be won including a fully paid trip to Jinja courtesy of the games sponsors; Smile Tours and Travel.

Interested teams can contact Draw A Smile Uganda via WhatsApp or Call on either 0788837279 OR 0701418288 to register their teams. Only 16 team slots are available for the football.

Last year, the games were held at Ntinda School of the deaf and all the proceeds went towards buying education material for children with hearing impairments at the school.

By Staff Writer

Over the week, a video of Salvado’s standup performance went viral. It was one of his most creative jokes to-date about different airlines and their themes.

On one of the jokes about Rwanda Air, genocide was mentioned as one of the topics air hostesses can’t miss.

Now Rwandans have picked that up and taken offence. They have given Salvado an ultimatum to apologize. But he is not about to allow.

On his Twitter profile, he says those offended are missing the humour. The Rwandans insist the 1994 Genocide against the tutsi is not something to joke about.
