  1. Its such a nice association and my dream is to go for masters in social work. Truly I love my profession though I’ve not yet gotten employment social work is so sweet.

  2. i am proud to be a social worker. i thank the secretariat for this information. i recommend that, the secretariat should have programs in universities and engage students in talks. since i joined kyambogo, i have never seen any person from the secretariat talking to us, not even giving a professional talk. please we love our profession.

    • Dear Emmanuel,
      That is good to know that you love the Social Work profession.
      We are currently in talks with the Head of Department on when to come and very soon you will be seeing us.

      By the way, one of our staff members came there during a Child Protection workshop organized by the Kyambogo Social Work students association in March 2016 and we received a great report on what your doing.

      Either way, lets keep in touch so as to build the social work profession together.
