President Yoweri Museveni has hailed a church-based school in Bugolobi for promoting education and improving the lives of vulnerable children.
In a speech read for him by the State Minister for Finance in charge of planning, David Bahati, Museveni praised the Church of Resurrection Bugolobi for the great initiative of starting Bethel Rock School 30 years ago.
This was at the weekend during celebrations to mark the school’s 30 years of existence.
“This celebration is a testimony of your faithfulness to God and mankind for you have transformed and impacted lives of vulnerable children,” Museveni in his speech.
“As you are all aware, the church in Uganda has been a reliable development partner with government over the years. This is especially evident in the area of human development, provision of education and health services,” he added.
The President said although there were challenges of moral decadence and under-development after the 1986 war, “The church has been very instrumental in the molding of society and moral guidance, ensuring social stability and economic empowerment.”
“In a special way, therefore, I want to thank the Church of Resurrection Bugolobi for the sacrifices and the humanitarian efforts. Your efforts have laid a strong foundation for this school to thrive over the years as can be seen today through the different achievements and milestones majorly centered on community transformation.”
