In order to reach additional villages where the greatest need has been recognized, the church has pledged to deepen its relationship and support the merger method, according to Bishop Onesimus Asiimwe of the North Kigezi Diocese.

Graduates were urged to excel in the job market as they had received excellent training and had an advantage over others who hadn’t benefitted from the program.

Bishop congratulated graduates on their steadfast academic path and encouraged them to continue on the belief that education levels the playing field regardless of background.

He warned them against succumbing to the powerful grips of unemployment, corruption, and greed exhorting them to rise above these negative traits by becoming men and women of integrity and honoring the Holy Spirit’s temples in light of the problem of sex impurity.

Bishop Onesimus continued by pleading with parents to continue teaching their children where compassion has ended.

Christopher Semarura, the manager of Partnership for Compassion International, assisting eight partnership facilitators who collaborate closely with the church to help children who are released from poverty, encouraged graduates to stay with the Lord.

Semarura advised them to uphold the morals they had learned from the project in the program, to follow Jesus, and to use the knowledge and abilities they had gained to better their neighborhoods, families, and the nation as a whole.

He continued by saying that while what they had achieved was a significant step forward, they still faced difficulties because they had just entered the workforce and needed to make the most of their abilities.

The graduates came from twelve centers within North Kigezi Diocese, according to Ven. Amos Katushabe, the archdeacon of Kakinga Archdeaconry, who urged the graduates to make use of their credentials and pursue further education.
