For now 12 years running, in the Rotary themed month of Literacy, the Buffaloes hold the premium “Interact Mentorship Program” and 2016 was no exception.
Traditional education giants, St. Henry’s College, Kitovu (SHACK) had agreed to host other schools and us for the project and so early on Saturday 5th March, 2016, we were aboard transportation to Masaka.
Ms. Imrode Nampeera from the Rotaract Club Of Masaka was the first speaker. She urged interactors not to cower when faced with a hard decision. To always never be afraid to change the perception of the world for positive impact, to dare to achieve the impossible.
Up next was the loquacious and brainy Country Chair, Kalule Ibrahim Gava, whose “Can we do this? Yes, we can” took the day. His major point of address was to assure the youngsters that with the right friends in the right frames of mind and network, all can be achieved. According to him, no dream was too big to snap out of, and see happen.
After Gava, the stakes had been raised but the speaker that followed didn’t disappoint. The charismatic Reverend Father Michael Ssenfuma. From his story, he helped the interactors understand that prioritization is paramount, hence the slogan “Keep MAJOR things MAJOR.” He went to affirm that it’s only with primarily belief in oneself that there can be any registered progression. As if his speech was not enough, he treated us to his latest project, his music. Two seconds into the presentation and everyone was on their feet, in exhalation of the Lord.
Assistant Governor John Stephen Muwonge climaxed the session of speeches when he told the tale of the hierarchy in Rotary, encouraging the youngsters to be open to joining Rotaract, and later, Rotary.
Famed old boy, and one of the newest warrior crop at Rotaract Club of Kololo, Kisitu Daniel opened the second session with a change themed talk. Perfect timing. He changed our minds to the lunch that was to be served in the next not so many minutes. Sumptuous meal that was!
After making amends with our tummies, it was the hour that interactors took charge of their day. Their were short presentations on the theme of the day, and there were the long awaited dance presentations. The boys at SHACK made quite the name for themselves. Centenary High School took the day when they were announced winners of the shield, and best themed presenters. After this win, the rest were irrelevant to them as they bombarded the DeeJay with music request to which he obliged and got them releasing some, if not all steam.
The day wouldn’t have been a success without interactors from SHACK, Nile High, St. Jude High & Centenary High and the Rotaract Clubs Of Kololo, Kampala North, Lake Victoria, Kyengera, Bugolobi, Kampala West, our Mwekuume partners from Bukoto, our mother club, the Rotary Club Of Kyambogo and immensely, the ROTARACT CLUB OF MASAKA.
We were all part of the process of creating a future of endless possibilities.
