Letshego Holdings Ltd, under its subsidiary Letshego Uganda has donated a consignment worth UGX4m to Kyotera town as an added effort towards the district’s efforts in managing the impact of the Corona virus pandemic.
“During times of uncertainty and crisis, one cannot reiterate enough the need to support one another. COVID-19 has really tested our collective strength. With many businesses closing, unemployment spiking, inability to pay rent and keeping the lights on- getting tougher than ever before. That’s why partnering with an initiative that is already taking strides in bettering their community is an opportunity we couldn’t pass on,” remarked Aijukwe Giles, CEO Letshego.
Aijukwe noted that in line with their tagline, which is ImprovingLives, Letshego has focused on environmental and community stewardship adding that they believe in development which meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of the future generations.
He resounded that an initiative like supporting the Kasolo Foundation is a formidable and worthwhile partnership so that they can help where they can because they are firmly committed to building a better world together.
Kyotera MP Kyeyune Kasolo thanked the management and staff of Letshego Uganda for heeding the calls of the people of Kyotera and for their continued support to the youth.
Kasolo remarked that their donation would go a long way in providing much needed assistance to the staff and beneficiaries of the foundation.
The Kasolo Foundation caters to over 100 youth (male/female) in the Kyotera area by arming them with skills in hair dressing, sewing, motorcycle repair and maintenance, metal work and fabrication and carpentry. Hon Kasolo’s foresight to opening of the Foundation was premised on the public outcry for increasing levels of youth employment in Kyotera. The foundation also ensures discipline through counselling and guidance classes, book keeping, customer care and marketing skills.
