Ghetto President, Robert Ssentamu Kyagulanyi commonly known Bobi Wine has joined an initiative meant to promote education.
As a parenting ambassador, Bobi is going to work together with Twaweza, a citizen-centred initiative to promote education. The initiative will work together with the producers of Bobi’s reality television show, Ghetto President Reality show, to promote the role of parents in improving learning.
He will also promote the outcomes for children when they study and also raise awareness about what parents can do to follow-up on capitation grant funds for Education, from the Government.
Rakesh Rajani, the head of Twaweza said artistes have a vital role to play in bringing about social change. “We are delighted to be able to work with Bobi Wine to promote citizen involvement in Education,” Rajani said during a tour of the firebase studios this week.
Last year, Bobi Wine was recognized for demonstrating exceptional commitment to improving the lives and conditions of communities in slum areas. The partnership with Twaweza is aimed at inspiring Ugandans from all walks of life to drive forward their own development.
“Education is what will ultimately change the course of our country and as an artiste and a father, I believe we can all make a difference in our children’s learning,” Bobi said.
