We’ve learned that the company is now the first in Uganda to give its female employees upto 6 months of fully paid maternity leave. The male employees will have upto one month of paternity leave.

According to some corporates we asked around Kampala, “other companies should pick a leaf from UBL and make life easy for their female employees to raise families. Otherwise at the moment it is as though getting pregnant and having children is a punishment in some companies.”

We congratulate UBL on this big move. It is not easy being the first to take a big move!

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.
