Jinja, (UG): Kuliva Foundation, a charity-based NGO in the Busoga Region has donated scholastic materials to Primary Seven candidates of Wisdom Junior School-Wanyange in Jinja City, Northern Division to enable them to excel in the upcoming Primary Leaving Examinations (PLE).

The donated items included 50 mathematical sets given to 50 P.7 candidates, pens and pencils, among others all of which are meant to boost their confidence, concentration and their academic performance.

The scholastic materials were on Wednesday (October 18) donated by Kuliva Foundation CEO, Ms Sharon Kuliva a.k.a Queen Sharon, the former Miss Tourism Luuka and Miss Walukuba.

Queen Sharon says the idea of donating to needy pupils scholastic materials is purposely to ensure that these children, most especially girls are not diverted from the main path of achieving education.

Bakunya Benjamin, one of the beneficiaries who spoke on behalf of the P.7 candidates expressed gratitude to Kuliva Foundation, stating that the mathematical sets will greatly benefit them ahead of the busy PLE period and that the contingent of the donation comes in handy to relieve their parents of the burden for such.

“..I am so excited to see our visitors from Kuliva Foundation, and on behalf of P.7, I am thankful that we have received the sets. I humbly request that Kuliva continues with this heart of giving to the needy pupils,” Bakunya stated.

Speaking on behalf of the staff at Wisdom Junior School, Mr Abdul Bwami said the donation triggered excitement from his candidates, adding that they (the pupils) will surely speak about this to their parents, in the neighbourhood to help spread the message of the foundation even further.

“Our P.7 candidates are all excited as you can see them, this goes beyond what you see on their faces. I think they are going to talk this to their parents, in the neighbourhood, that they have received sets from Kuliva Foundation,” he stated.

“We are so thankful, and we hope you continue with this generosity,” Mr Bwami added.

Besides the donation of scholastic materials, Ms Sharon Kuliva also offered counselling to the candidates and urged them to stay focused and not compare themselves with others, as everyone is unique in their own way.

“What disturbs the boy and girl-child today is because they do not believe in themselves. You should know that you are unique, do not compare yourselves to others, do not admire nice things from your friends, or else you will be tempted to seek favour from the opposite sex,” she advised.

Ms Sharon further advised the young girls to ensure they do not drop out of school and to openly speak out if they face any challenge or are being disturbed. “Come out, speak out, you are the voice of your life,” she emphasized.

Kuliva Foundation Uganda is a birth of an idea crafted by Sharon Kuliva against the background of rampant early pregnancies in the Busoga Region with a mission to fight early childhood pregnancy and help the needy by offering them free scholastic materials such as books, pens, sets, etc.

In her own words, she says; “I decided to use my voice as former Miss Tourism Luuka, and Miss Walukuba, to help those young girls and boys stay focused on their education. We tour different schools to carry out many activities such as counselling, donations, skilling projects, etc.”
