By Our Reporter 

MultiChoice Uganda has rewarded 200 customers who took part in the back-to-school promo dubbed “Sasanya Amajja” that was launched in December, 2019.

The “Sasanya Amajja” promo was intended to reward DStv and GOtv customers who subscribed or reconnected their DStv or GOtv for a period of two months running from December 2019 to 31st January 2020 with cash prizes and scholastic materials.

Colin Asiimwe, Head of Marketing at MultiChoice Uganda, while addressing the winners and media revealed that MultiChoice Uganda chose to be involved in the education journey of school going children who are some of their prized viewers because they too influence purchasing decisions of parents.

Asiimwe said that, “The month of January is synonymous with going back to school season for most, if not all parents. Our Sasanya Amajja promotion was aimed at giving back to our customers through cash specifically to ease the burden of school fees or pocket money and for scholastic materials.”

“Education is a key aspect in empowering the generations to come, and as the old adage goes, ‘when you educate a child, you educate a nation,’ we believe we shall have empowered our customers economically and socially,” he added.

The PR & Communications Manager at MultiChoice, Joan S. Kizza told guests that the response to the promo was overwhelming and surpassed targeted response. She explained that, “Since the campaign launch on 19th December 2019, we have received over 180,000 entries out of whom, 200 will be rewarded as winners of the promo with Ushs. 100 million, with each individual taking home Ushs. 500,000.

“Over and above the Ush 100 million that we are giving out in prizes, each winner today will be taking home scholastic materials, like notebooks, pencil cases, colours and pencils,” she remarked. “We spent an additional 20 million on these materials, which will be great add-ons for students.”

One of the winners, Tugume Benon a businessman in Kampala said that this reward comes as answered prayer.

“I always subscribe for DStv, especially because of the children and prayed fervently for me to be among the winners of this money,” Tugume exclaimed, adding that, “I want to thank God for this great miracle and MultiChoice for helping us in raising our children through educative programs, and now by making a contribution towards school fees.”

By Our Reporter

The National social security Fund has asked all its members (employers and
employees) in the Western region to embrace and skillfully utilize their available technological innovation especially their online channels and platforms. This was accentuated during the NSSF western regional employer meeting which was held at Hotel Triangle in Mbarara on Tuesday.

This meeting was the fourth in the Western region and the second of its kind to take place in Mbarara town. The NSSF Western belt is comprised of districts like Masaka, Mbarara, Bushenyi, Kanungu, Kabale Kisoro and Fort portal.

“We must accept that the environment of doing business has changed due to the sophisticated technological progressions that are happening now, we as NSSF, have pushed for a paperless economy in all our branches, therefore we request all our customers to appreciate our e-services for a better service delivery,” Managing Director, Mr. Richard Byarugaba said.

The Fund’s current statistics show that 70% of their members access their services such as self-registration, clearing remittances and checking balance statements via their online portal whereas only 30% are still visiting the branches for services.

According to Mr. Geoffrey Ssajjabi, NSSF Head of Business, this percentage is promising but it’s not their target, therefore, for them to be able to hit their intended target of 100% e-services, members have to appreciate the existing Fund’s online channels and interact with them more often.

Mr. Byarugaba highlighted the key importance of the online tools such creating customer satisfaction, saves money and time, staff and customer convenience.

Members in the Western region have expressed their sincere gratitude to the fund for always being transparent and interactive with its members on issues that need clarity.

The two-month campaign which was aimed at encouraging Investment Clubs to grow their savings attracted participation from existing and new Savings Groups across the country.

The Clubs received UGX 1,000,000/- each, which was presented to them during a financial literacy session organized by the Bank under the theme, “Building and growing the Investments Engine.” The session was also attended by over sixty Investment Clubs.

The six campaign winners included; Eight Investment Club, Ngeye Kwagalana Association, Moside Savings and Investment Club, Ladies Together Investment Club, Da Climbers Investment Club, and Fontaine Ladies Association Limited.

In November 2019, dfcu Bank launched its Investment Club App as part of efforts to leverage technology in advancing financial inclusion. With more than 24,000 Investment Clubs, the App is instrumental in simplifying the day to day management of group savings.

Speaking during the session, Robert Wanok dfcu Bank’s Head Personal and Business Banking encouraged the groups to take advantage of opportunities that foster individual and combined growth. He also applauded them for their commitment to growing their respective club savings, which was a key aspect of the campaign.

“On behalf of dfcu Bank, I congratulate our winners and commend their dedication to boosting their financial standing. The success of Investment Clubs is determined by the discipline and commitment of their members. The success of many is made possible by combining the efforts of many and the success of this campaign is a testament to this fact,” Wanok said.

Total Uganda has reaffirmed their commitment to their continued partnership with the Uganda People’s Defense Forces (UPDF) by contributing Shs30,000,000 towards the construction of a classroom block at Namagera Church of Uganda Primary School in Nakaseke, Wakiso District.

The school was constructed in 1980 and currently has a capacity of 290 pupils. A visit by Total Uganda’s staff to the school revealed that the poor infrastructure (classrooms), limited sanitary facilities and lack of accommodation for teachers were among the issues affecting the school’s academic performance.

Total Uganda’s Managing Director, Obi IMEMBA handed over the cheque to General David Muhoozi, the Chief of Defense Forces (CDF), at a ceremony held at the UPDF headquarters in Mbuya.

During the cheque handover, Mr. IMEMBA reiterated Total Uganda’s commitment to the communities it operates in and commended the UPDF for its Tarehe Sita activities.

“Education is an investment that is why we also need to invest in proper infrastructure to provide a conducive learning environment for pupils. Total Uganda believes in quality education being one the most important growth drivers for the social–economic development of Uganda. Investing in education should be a top priority for everyone in the community,” IMEMBA remarked.

The Chief of Defense Forces, General David Muhoozi expressed his gratitude towards Total Uganda’s contribution and pledged to continue working with them to help various communities.

“As part of our 39th Tarehe Sita celebrations, which we held in Nakaseke, we identified Namagere Church of Uganda Primary School as one that needed help. Through our very good relationship we enjoy with Total Uganda, we reached out to them to offer any support possible. We are thankful that they were willing and have gone ahead to fulfil their promise.
The classroom block will be built by the UPDF Engineering brigade,” General Muhoozi said.

The headmaster of Namagere Church of Uganda Primary School expressed his gratitude at Total Uganda and the UPDF’s generosity towards the school.

“We are indeed indebted to Total Uganda and the UPDF for the additional classroom block. The obligation is on us to repay your efforts by excelling. We are going to work hard to be among the top schools in this community,” he said.

Total Uganda is committed to ensuring access to quality education for all children, in particular the underprivileged ones from disadvantaged and marginalized communities, so as to realize immense significance for overall development of the country.
