Beverley Nambozo Poetry Award school project

The BN Poetry Award began in 2008 with the aim of promoting poetry for development amongst women. Since then, Rt. Honourable Rebecca Kadaga has taken over as patron. It was registered under the name Beverley Nambozo Poetry Award under the number 169929 in November 2009 pursuant to and in accordance with the provisions of the Business Names Registration Act and the rules made thereunder. The owner of this is Beverley Nambozo Nsengiyunva. The project’s goals will be met by partnering with various stakeholders in the financial and literary sectors for example GILGAL Family Network, Lantern Meet of Poets and Entrepreneurship clubs of schools. Since inception, the project has evolved to meet the financial and literary needs of both male and female students in schools through linking poetry to financial literacy. After several sessions, students will submit poems that speak largely on saving, investment and the culture of money. These poems shall then be reviewed by a panel of judges after which they will be printed and distributed amongst other schools in the region.
