Kampala, (UG):- As preparations ramp up for the upcoming Wakiso Empowerment Drive under the Office of the NRM National Chairman (ONC), renowned city businesswoman Ms. Maria Namusoke Kamoga of Honda by Markh Investments Ltd has donated two motorcycles.

This contribution is part of ONC’s initiatives to empower Ugandan youth.

The motorcycles were received today, Tuesday, June 11, by Hajjat Hadijah Namyalo, the custodian manager of ONC, at the Kyambogo offices in Kampala.

In her remarks, Ms. Namusoke praised Hajjat Namyalo’s efforts in combating poverty among youth and women.

“I have come to give a hand to Hajjat Namyalo in her empowerment drives because she is doing a very impressive job in uplifting the lower income people with capital items to help themselves out of poverty,” Ms Namusoke said.

“Whenever you look out for the needy persons and empower them, you’re helping a nation at large, and that is we, as Markh Investments have come out to contribute towards this cause,” she added.

Ms Namusoke also pledged that through her company, they will also donate hand tractors, sprayers, and other agricultural equipment to ensure farmers in Wakiso and Entebbe improve their farming with Value Addition as preached by the President in his numerous addresses to the nation.

The President is always urging us on Value Addition so that our agricultural produce improves, and that’s why we feel these tools are important for the farmers to boost their income inflow from farming,” she said.

The ONC Manager, Hajjat Hadijah Namyalo thanked Ms Namusoke for the generosity displayed in giving in the motorcycles, saying the motorcycle now adds to the many capital items that will be handed to President Museveni’s Bazzukulu at Entebbe Muslim Grounds in Wakiso.

“Thank you so much Maria for boosting our empowerment, we want to live a legacy of helping youths out of poverty, and very soon we’ll make a documentary featuring some of the beneficiaries from this initiative and how many jobs have been created by those who received the items,” Hajjat Namyalo remarked.

“This is an indicator of Value Addition to who appointed you. Even those fond of copying our strategies, please join us to help fight poverty amongst the Wanainchi,” she added.

Under the stewardship of SPA Namyalo, ONC’s unwavering dedication to uplifting communities and fostering unity underscores the pivotal role of grassroots empowerment in driving sustainable development.

Ever since the campaign started over a year ago, more than one million youths have benefited from the program, directly & Indirectly and the campaign continues to yield fruits in almost every corner of the country.

Wakiso will be the next district and region reached by Hajjat Namyalo through President Museveni’s empowerment initiative which aims to donate a host of wealth creation tools that can help people start up some businesses and start earning a daily income for their homesteads.

Some of the items which are expected to be given to the beneficiaries will include; sewing machines, metal fabrication and welding equipment, hairdryers, chips-making machines, popcorn machines, carpentry tools, and more as the office bids to empower communities towards self-sufficiency.
