British Airways offered 2 return tickets to London at the recent International School Uganda (ISU) PTA fundraising dinner dance as part of the airline’s Corporate social initiative. The tickets were won in a raffle by Yolande Cook, Protea hotel and Amber Rheinhart, ISU.
The annual event comprised parents, teachers and friends of ISU who have committed to support the school scholarship fund which provides pre-university education of an international standard for socially and economically disadvantaged Ugandan students aged 16-18 years, usually orphaned or otherwise lacking adequate parental support.
The three-year and a quarter scholarship estimated at $12,000 per student, enables them to obtain an IB Diploma to pursue University education. The qualifying students are required to have attained grade one results at the Uganda Certificate of Secondary Education (o-level).
