RYTHM Foundation Raises The Lives of the People of Uganda

Kampala, Uganda: 28 November 2008 – RYTHM Foundation reached out to the African nation of Uganda with three heartfelt donations worth USD 30,000 that will significantly raise the lives of worthy Ugandans. The three separate donations were made by RYTHM Foundation’s Principal Trustee Dato’ Vijay Eswaran in front of an audience that included the Prime Minister of the Republic of Uganda the Honourable Professor Apolo Nsibambi, First Lady of Uganda H.E. Janet Museveni, and the Nnabagereka of Buganda Sylvia Nagginda (Her Majesty Queen Sylvia Nagginda of Buganda). Also in the audience were thousands of passionate Independent Representatives of QuestNet who had converged in Kampala, Uganda, for the trade and training event, V-Africa.

  • H.E. the First Lady of Uganda’s UWESO (Ugandan Women’s Effort to Save Orphans) Foundation
  • ‘Think Tank’ of the Makerere University Private Sector Forum, under the patronage of Governor Emmanuel Mutebile of Bank of Uganda

These donations were made at the final stop of the 10th Anniversary World Tour of QI Ltd subsidiary, QuestNet. QuestNet’s 10th Anniversary had seen the celebrations traverse the globe, with the very special event in Kampala, Uganda, marking the final destination. A formal visit from RYTHM Foundation Manager Renu Gidoomal will follow the pledge to present the cheques to the three beneficiary organisations and plan a deeper involvement of RYTHM Foundation into the local development initiatives. In addition to the USD 30,000 in donations made by RYTHM Foundation as part of the event, the event itself went a long way towards helping the people and the cause in Africa. The event, attended by thousands of guests from Africa, the Middle East and Asia, allows Africa the chance to harness the opportunity of e-commerce, which was noted by the Prime Minister as making a positive impact on the people of Africa. “This is a people business that is based on changing your outlook on life, and the belief in this business is what makes it thrive in Africa,” said the Prime Minister, the Honourable Professor Apolo Nsibambi. “You have provided a new platform for e-commerce and the opportunity for thousands of Africans to achieve their dreams. I am honoured to be here tonight sharing in this with you.”
