The Executive Director of Kampala Capital City Authority , Jennifer Musisi Semakula, has appealed to Ugandans to always make a contribution for restoration of hope, dignity and improving lives of inmates at various detention centers.
Musisi remarked during Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) drive at Luzira Maximum Security Prison aimed at supporting, sharing love and a word of encouragement with prisoners at the facility.
“During my earlier visit in June this year, I learnt that the Prison school system has unique challenges, is resource constrained, and that, the learning environment and facilities have a negative effect on their academic achievement,” she said
The team donated school furniture, coupled with other amenities which include water systems to access clean water, stationery, cleaning equipment, scholastic materials among other supplies peddled at making their learning experience and environment conducive to subsequently improve grades for a chance to give them a better life once they are out of prison.
“The people at the facility are part of us and we should not forget them. It’s in our interest as Citizens to contribute to the welfare of the Prison Community. We are happy to make a contribution to their education, give them the support they need to thrive as they get reformed to enable them attain their Life dreams,” she said.
