Simon Lukwago has been installed as the 9th President of the Rotaract Club of Nkumba Stewards, a community-based Rotaract club dedicated to humanitarian service.

The installation ceremony which took place at Comfort Hotel in Entebbe, was presided over by Prof. Jude Lubega, the Nkumba University’s Vice-Chancellor.

In his address, Prof. Jude lauded the club’s commitment to serving humanity, “As a Rotarian myself, I am proud to see young people dedicating their time and resources to make a positive impact in their communities,” said Prof. Lubega.

He further urged the club to devise means of collaborating with Rotary and Rotaract clubs along the Entebbe corridor if they are to multiply their efforts and make a more impactful difference in the community. “Let us combine our efforts and work towards a common goal of serving humanity, alone, we can do little, but united, we can do alot more.”

The club has adopted a project dubbed “Skilling for Sustainability,” aimed at empowering teenage mothers with skills to support themselves and their children.

During the fundraising, the club raised 12 sewing machines, more than the 11 needed and realised close to 80% of the project’s funding.

Founded in 2015 and later chartered on April 2016, the Rotaract Club of Nkumba Stewards is a vibrant and dynamic group of young men and women united in the ideal of service.

Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Nkumba, the club is part of the global network of young professionals committed to community service, leadership development, and networking.

Like any other Rotary, Rotaract or Interact club, Nkumba Stewards focuses on projects aligned with Rotary International’s seven areas of focus, including peacebuilding and conflict prevention, disease prevention and treatment, water, sanitation, and hygiene, maternal and child health, basic education and literacy and community economic development.

With Joan Atieno as the charter president, the club has witnessed an array of great leaders including PP Julius Buchana, PP Joan Mukisa, PP Gabriel Matovu, PP Jacline Oyella, PP/PDRR Francis Matovu, PP Allan, and now IPP Griphines Ssemambo.

Under Lukwago’s leadership, the club is expected to intensify its humanitarian efforts, focusing on projects that benefit the local community and beyond.
