Entebbe Children Welfare School was on the receiving end after CNOOC Uganda Limited visited them to deliver a cash donation of $500, 000 (approx. Shs1.8 billion).
This bounty is a collection pooled together by CNOOC and the companies contracted to work in the Kingfisher Oilfield Project.
Entebbe Children Welfare School is an educational institution serving vulnerable and disadvantaged children with different disabilities.
The oil company said the contribution is a testament to their commitment to corporate social responsibility and their ongoing efforts to enable children to access comfortable education.
The financial contribution will aid in the improvement of the school's infrastructural facilities and educational resources to provide a conducive learning environment.
CNOOC said of the $500,000, $50,000 came from China Construction, $150,000 from COOEC and CPECC, $150,000 from Daqing Oil Field Company and $150,000 from COSL.
CNOOC Uganda Limited also donated souvenirs to the school.
Hu Weijie, the acting President of CNOOC Uganda Limited, expressed his enthusiasm about the partnership and the shared vision of empowering Ugandans through education.
He stated that CNOOC believes in the transformative power of education. “We aim to enhance the learning experience and provide opportunities for students to excel academically.
We are honoured to collaborate with our contractors and make a meaningful difference in the lives of the vulnerable children who represent the future of Uganda," Weijie said.
