Kabale University launches yoghurt, ice cream & sausage productionCollins Mann
KABALE– The vice-chancellor of Kabale University Prof. Constance Joy Kwesiga has asked each faculty at Kabale University to have an income-generating project to equip students with practical skills.
Prof. Kwesiga said this during the launch of yoghurt, ice cream and sausage products made by the faculty of agriculture and environmental sciences at Kabale University in a function held at the university grounds in Kikungiri Kabale municipality.
Prof. Kwesiga said that investing in practical skills is one of the ways to help students employ themselves even when they are still students by raising employment skills to compete in the market industry.
She thanked the students for starting on a good note of self-driven skills and pledged for total support from the university to make the faculty grow and produce more products.

Last month, the faculty of science at Kabale University led by its dean Dr. Daniel Buyinza also manufactured 7,000 litres of liquid soap known as KABSAFE detergent that was distributed to communities as an initiative towards fighting COVID-19.
Speaking at the same launch, the deputy Vice Chancellor in charge of academic affairs Prof. Benon Basheka said that if each faculty practices what is being taught, Kabale University would be very far away in terms of equipping students with practical skills.
He asked students to stick to integrating what they learn into practice and love their professions in whichever capacities they are in if they’re to succeed in this world.
