KAMPALA – The National Curriculum Development Centre (NCDC), has approved businessman Hamis Kiggundu’s book for secondary schools.
During a media address held on June 12, in Kampala a certificate of recognition was handed over to Mr. Kigunddu by the NCDC Director, Ms. Baguma Grace.
She said that after studying and assessing Kigundu’s book titled Success and Failures Based on Reason and Reality, NCDC found it relevant to adopt the book in Uganda’s curriculum to inspire students into investing.
“This book brings out creative thinking and it’s a must read because of the rich insights on entrepreneurship and self-belief, “she remarked.
“This is not about the language that we learn from it, but the actual facts of life for the children who are growing up today. We learn to become better citizens critical thinkers, acquire generic skills that are recommended by the curriculum.” She added.
Kiggundu is a well-known businessman who not only trades in Uganda as Ham Enterprises Ltd, but also as Ham International UK Ltd in the UK, Ham International Ltd in the US and Skylight Investments in South Africa.
In this book, Ham says he’s purely a businessman and doesn’t often write books. But he did write this one due to the prevailing circumstances of many friends approaching him on how he managed to make it today.
He wrote the book in only six days without doing any research at all because it was his intention to pass on his unbiased personal opinion to the readers from a realistic and reasonable perspective. So the book is purely based on his personal realistic opinions.
