UMI to Support Studying Mothers

The director general of Uganda Management Institute (UMI), Dr James Nkata, has announced that plans are underway to put up a Child Nursing Centre to support mothers who wish to further their education, but also wish to build their families.

According to Dr Nkata, most women find it hard to continue with their education when they become mothers.

He made this announcement during the institute’s 13th graduation over the weekend, where 2,147 graduates received Master’s degrees, postgraduate diplomas and certificates. Nkata said the centre would house babies for participants studying at the institute as well as the teaching staff, who are compelled to take an extended maternity leave.

“This child nursing centre will go a long way to support female participants and staff that had challenges of caring for the babies while at study or work over the past years,” he said.

At the graduation, the chancellor, Geraldine Namirembe Bitamazire, aised graduands to develop a passion for their work, instead of focusing on acquiring easy money and avoid corruption at all levels.

“As an elder at this institution, I urge you to avoid corruption, UMI is focusing on outcome which is the productivity, creativity and innovativeness use your skills you get from UMI to get clean money,” she said.

She added that the institution has for long excelled in post-education experience and training programmes which address problems in leadership, management, administration, research and consultancy and so the graduands should reflect these principles at their workplaces.
