The speaker of Parliament has stretched her legacy as a champion of the girl-child by launching an education initiative named after her.
The Speaker said the Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga Education Initiative (RAK), is an NGO, that will champion girl-child education, ‘especially for the rural poor; health and leadership.’
Kadaga said she has tapped leaders for the organization from diverse professions.
“We’ve bought 100,000 exercise books — to be distributed to needy pupils.”
During the recently concluded campaign for a seat at the ruling party’s top organ, CEC, Kadaga highlighted her record as a champion of girl children.
