When Esther Nassali stayed home for a term after losing her parents to HIV/AIDS in 2006, she thought her dream of getting an education was shattered. The first born in a family of seven is thankful to be back in school.

“I am going to sit for my Primary Leaving Examinations at Nakifuma Voluntary Children Primary School this year,” Nassali says. She is among the children whom the Vision Group visited on the day of the African child.

When the children saw the bus comprising the Vision team approaching their school, they began singing: “You are welcome our visitors.”

The head prefect, Musa Kasumba, said it was the first time they received aid on the day of the African child. “The fact that you chose to come to this school means you have love for needy children, especially us,” Kasumba said.

The children danced and jubilated after receiving food items including maize flour, posho, beans, sugar, rice, juice, biscuits, soda, salt, milk and cooking oil.

They also received scholastic materials including Pass PLE books, clothing, shoes and sanitary items.

Vision Voice Radio promotions coordinator Isaac Kudzu said they wanted to join the rest of Africa in commemorating the day.

“Families and companies like Coca-Cola, Nice House of Plastics, Movit, Everyday Biscuits and Club East Enders donated towards the cause,” Kudzu said.

The head teacher, Rachael Namugambe, said the school would introduce vocational studies to cater for orphans who fail to join secondary school for lack of fess.
