Holy places asked to be the vanguard of develoment
The church has been encouraged to integrate finance literacy in their sermons, as one way of helping the society to get out of poverty.
Speaking as the Guest of Honor at a fundraising and thanksgiving function at Sherengye church, Kinoni Archdeaconry in Kasaana Parish, Kinoni sub-county in Kiruhura district, Wilson Kajwengye the Chief Executive officer Kajwengye Foundation, asked the Church leaders in addition to faith, to integrate the teaching on saving culture, in order to help the flock get out of poverty.
Kajwengye also appealed to the people of Kinoni to form development groups and save money, as a way of getting themselves from the habit of acquiring high interest loans, yet they are not saving.
George Kasisani, the lay leader, Kinoni archdeaconry applauded Kajwengye for the gospel about saving, adding that more sensitization still needs to be done .
More that 2 million was raised during the fundraising, while Kajwengye contributed five hundred thousand towards the church completion.
