“I will address climate change issues by encouraging fellow Lions and the communities to plant trees in environment protection,” Ndyarugahi told journalists shortly after arrival at Entebbe International Airport.

She also pledged to embark on recruiting new Lions so that they can give a hand in uplifting the standards of the vulnerable in society.

“I am going to embark on recruiting new members out of the population of 34 million Ugandans to join hands to improve the lives of less fortunate in society,” she said.

The new district governor who has been undergoing training in Toronto, Canada for one month said she has got the leadership skills and will propel the club to greater heights.

She said she will also apply skills in conflict resolution to help those who are involved in conflicts.
