Kampala, Uganda – Whether it’s the establishment of citizen organizations or the employment of thousands of individuals, non-governmental organizations are essential to the socioeconomic development of a nation.
NGOs face a variety of challenges as they carry out these and other duties, and frequently these challenges call for the assistance and support of financial institutions.
In light of this, dfcu Bank successfully hosted a breakfast meeting for non-governmental organizations at the Hotel Africana in Kampala, bringing together participants from different NGOs working in diverse fields from all across the nation.
Godfrey Mundua, the Head of Corporate Banking at dfcu, emphasized the Bank’s dedication to helping NGOs in Uganda accomplish their goals by saying, “dfcu Bank understands the crucial role NGOs play in advancing social and economic development in Uganda. We are dedicated to giving these organizations the help they need to overcome their obstacles and accomplish their goals.
He also discussed the Bank’s commitment to its aim of transforming people’s lives and businesses via creative solutions and human empowerment.
“Nobody’s road to recovery has been simple, and the COVID-19 pandemic’s consequences have been especially felt in the NGO sector. We are holding this conference in order to shorten and simplify the recovery process and to collaborate with NGOs as we work out how to help your organizations operate sustainably both now and in the future.
“We think that attaining sustainable development requires partnerships and collaborations. We thus encourage NGOs to use this chance and get in touch with one another and the dfcu Bank to discuss how they may collaborate to further social and economic development in Uganda,” Mundua continued.
Dr. Moses Isooba, Executive Director of the Uganda National NGO Forum and the main speaker for the event, urged dfcu to connect with NGOs more frequently in order to help them gain access to funding. Dr. Isooba said that this will “…develop community-benefiting solutions and programs” in addition to co-creating socially responsible infrastructure.
At the event, Robinah Nanjego Muhinda, Relationship Manager of Corporate Banking, gave a thorough presentation on the dfcu NGO Customer Value Proposition. Julius Kateera, Head of Financial Markets at dfcu Bank, gave a macroeconomic overview presentation outlining what is happening in the economy locally, regionally, and globally.
