Among the things donated to them by Nabatanzi during the drive included scholastic materials and mattresses for a few lucky students.
Speaking to Nabatanzi, she said that having been raised in a financially unstable family, she pursued Journalism as a career and it has helped her see and experience firsthand challenges that girls go through in Uganda before becoming successful.
“The United Nations Girls’ Education Initiative (UNGEI) reported that more than 700,000 girls in Uganda between the ages of six to 12 have never attended school,” Nabatanzi says. She goes on to say that around half of girls between the ages of 15 to 24 are illiterate and four in five girls do not attend high school.
The above statistics are one of the driving forces that helped her launch the charity campaign that took place on women’s day to enable her to empower the Girl Child, uneducated, disabled, less privileged and Orphans among others.
