The Daily Monitor in its annual nominations of different personalities of the year nominated and voted our very own Mwiine Andrew Kaggwa as the most outstanding volunteer of 2014 after following up his contribution towards the most vulnerable. Mwiine Andrew has been a volunteer for now 10 years and he is also the Branch Youth Chairperson of Entebbe. In his own words, Mwiine’s philosophy is life’s persistent and most urgent question in life - what you are doing for others? By Martin Luther

Mwine told the following story about his experience with Uganda Red Cross Society:

“I am proud to be part of the 2nd biggest brand in the world the Red Cross which has mentored me to become an influential and opinion leader in my community and also the entire society of the Red Cross in Uganda”. I joined URCS in my senior four and I have followed its dynamic changes untill today and I have maintained my momentum to achieve its vision which is improving the lives of the most vulnerable. I have specialized in youth driven activities especially in areas of leadership, life planning skills as well as reproductive health.

I encourage my fellow youth never to give up on service towards the most vulnerable because in the long run you change a life and your own life also changes.” I am hoping that with God on my side I will continue uplifting the power of humanity until the sky is no longer the limit. I appreciate my fellow youth and Volunteers particularly from Entebbe and the entire Kampala cluster for trusting me to lead them in several activities and all the other clusters where I have implemented for a long time.

I am as well thankful to the youth department for giving me exposure through different opportunities given to me in the URCS and the entire youth governance for their encouragement for my family God bless them. HINIVUU
