Visit from Naome Kabasharira Women MP for Ntungamo

Earlier this year we had a very important visitor at Ruhanga Community project, Hon Naome Kabasharira.

Hon Naome Kabasharira is a Member of Uganda’s Parliament and is responsible for women’s affairs in Ntungamo district where Ruhanga is located.

Below are some photos from that day

Of all the facilities Hon Naome was shown, the school Library impressed her the most as this is the only school in the area that has such a facility

I think Marion has just got her first customer! Hon. Naome distributes sanitary towels to the best students each year. A great opportunity for Marion, Agnes and the teams to supply Hon. Naome’s initiative. If the girls can pull that off….
