Over 600 graduates have received mentorhip programs from Madhvani Foundation Scholarship programs over the last 5 sessions held for Scholarship beneficiaries.

Speaking at the one day mentorship program held at Madhvani Hall in Lugogo Show Grounds on Saturday, Charles Katabi the Chairman of the Muljibhai Madhvani Alumni Association (MMASS) said the foundation is determined to improve the offer. "Over 600 Ugandans have benefited in the last 5 sessions held here and some are into farming, IT, private businesses and other fields while others got opportunites in big companies," he said. Over 100 graduates attended the mentorship program facilitated by Michael Niyitegeka, a motivational speaker and IT consultant under the theme - Creativity, Innovation and Profession.

Niyitegeka urged graduates to look beyond their profession and develop an attitude in themselves in which they can change.

"One of the challenges is the attitude. Students should look beyond the basic knowledge they receive in school. Just take the initiative and if it works out, you become a master," he said.
