The diocese through BIFED’S board and other decision making bodies have been planning on several ways of fundraising for this fund in order to make it sustainable, among these is the investment of funds in some projects like Songe Hostel, Tumaini Bureau de Change and SEKUCo. Whereby in the long run BIFED will benefit from these projects.

Our educational institutions such as SEKUCo, Bangala LJS, Lwandai and NED church members have also been involved in funding this project, including other well wishers.

The demand for funds is very high because many young people are very eager in getting education, although many of them come from poor families if not orphans.

We trust God that much will be done trough this fund and that many young people will be able to get better education and become good and better leaders in the future. We appreciate your strong support as we walk together in supporting the disadvantaged in society.
