Mr. Dauda Kavuma, founder of the Ghetto Kids, received the Vocational Service Award for 2023/24 and a well-deserved 3 million UGX cheque, recognizing his incredible work empowering youth. We, at CIC Insurance, were proud to match that cheque with an additional 5 million UGX, amplifying his impact!

Another shining moment was the recognition of Mr. Lubega John, a driver at Hardware World. His courage and selflessness during a flood incident at Namboole, where he saved stranded passengers in a taxi, earned him a Vocational Service Award along with a cheque of 500,000. Once again, CIC Insurance echoed the appreciation by matching the cheque amount, acknowledging the importance of such heroic acts in our community.

In his powerful address, emphasized the shared values between CIC Insurance and the Rotary Club of Kiwatule. Drawing parallels between the core value of Rotary, “Service Above Self,” and CIC’s principles of Integrity, Dynamism, Performance, and Cooperation. 

“Just as Rotary measures its success by the impact it makes, we at CIC are driven by results that create a positive impact in society. In the last three years for instance, we have paid back to our clients a total of Ugx 30Billion helping them restore their businesses having suffered losses that would otherwise have rendered their personal lives or businesses in an unbearable financial situation. It is equally noteworthy that 35% of all the compensation goes to benefit individuals at the lowest end of the economic scale.”

The partnership aligns seamlessly with the ethos of “Service Above Self,” fostering a commitment to protecting the planet for future generations.
