Construction of good modern sanitary toilets at Good Samaritan Primary School in Kamwokya, Kampala suburb Friday commenced with a team from The Ruparelia Foundation leading way to the realization of this promise.
The money for setting up the sanitation facilities are proceeds from the Royal Ascot Goat Races social event that took place on October 12, 2019, at Speke Resort Munyonyo.
The Goat Races, Uganda’s most popular social events, that take place at Speke Resort was this year bigger, merrier and as always extravagant fashion. It provided a platform for revelers to network and mix business with pleasure.
Several companies sponsored this year’s edition of the goat races. These included Tusker Malt Lager, Ruparelia Group, 88.2 Sanyu FM, Goldstar Insurance, Speke Resort Munyonyo, Robbialac, and NTV Uganda.
And now the money that was raised from this social event is helping the ghetto people of Kamwokaya with better eco-friendly toilets. Rajiv Ruparelia said the charity was aimed at improving the sanitation in the slums of Kampala.
The state of sanitation many Kampala slums and in particular Kamwokya has been found to be wanting and initiatives by corporates like the Ruparelia Foundation come in handy to uplift the healthy living standards of the people who live there.
The Ruparelia Foundation works to improve and promote health, education, sports, general welfare, and poverty eradication, improve livelihoods, support the welfare of wildlife and preservation of the environment by fostering partnerships among businesses, corporations, with the government, non-governmental organization and individuals.
