NUWODU, along with well-wishers from partner Disabled People’s Organization did when they took part in Makerere University Business School’s first annual run. The event kicked off with a warm up for participants and saw both the able-bodied and disabled persons taking off in the 5km race where NUWODU’s intern Daphine Uwizera and Program Assistant Molly Ongoza emerged second runners-up.

The run was attended by the state Minister for Education and Sports who thanked Makerere University Business School for taking the initiative to fundraise for the education of disabled Women as it gave them the opportunity to go back to school. In his speech; he admitted that it was the government’s policy to support Persons with Disabilities but the run was an initiative that should be taken on by all universities because disability is everyone’s problem.
