Educate Your Own makes a comeback on campus by appreciating its supporters

By Christine Kamala

On Monday, February 14, The Educate your Own Volunteers under the Fundraising Department, spearheaded the donor engagement and stewardship campaign on campus. The activity of the day involved giving away a signed “Thank You Card” and a Rose Flower to the various donor constituents which include students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends of the university.

The day is set aside to appreciate the immense support students receive from various donor segments to complete their education and pursue the career of their dreams and without financial anxiety. The volunteers also used the opportunity to inform the various constituents of the upcoming Annual Month of Giving which is slated for May 2022. In addition, it was an opportunity for freshmen and sophomores to learn about EYO and the impact of their efforts while in return, the donors appreciated the kind gesture and applauded the cause for the good work.

The number of students relying on financial aid to achieve their goal increased by 40% in the wake of COVID-19 and through the EYO initiative, the COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund supported 37 students which brings the total number of students supported to 100.

This semester, in the spirit of appreciation, the initiative is offering Kes. 300,000 to support continuing students facing financial challenges. Students are asked to visit the Financial aid office to access the application forms before the deadline which is slated for March 4, 2022.
