Student donates books to Hamu Mukasa Library

By Ivan Tsebeni

The Uganda Christian University’s Hamu Mukasa Library on Friday December 11, received book donations to support the training of public health experts and research. The 11 books were donated by Grounders Uganda, a local organization which deals in research, training and financial literacy.

While handing over the books, Cedrick Joseph Wabwire, the founder and team leader of the organisation, who is also a UCU graduate student of Master of Research and Public Policy, said that he discovered the need for those books after a chat with the university librarian.

“I was informed of the gap that needed our contribution and close participation in filling it,” Wabwire said.

He said after sharing the need with his friends, they quickly mobilized and bought those books because they are passionate about advancing quantitative research.

The University Librarian, Monica Ntege who received the books, appreciated Grounders Uganda for the kind gesture, saying it was a good surprise.

She said that the donation was timely because the National Council for Higher Education had tasked the university to stock more of public health books, a gap which the donation has partially filled.

Ntege also said that students were blessed to have receive the ‘knowledge’.

“This is a good initiative because the books shall help students to acquire research knowledge,” she said.

Ntege said that the university is doing a lot to boost research.
