As part of the university’s effort to build a coalition against corrupt interests that are threating land entrusted to educational institutions, members of the
USIU-Africa community will converge at Roysambu Primary School on Friday, September 23 from 9am to repair a portion of the local school’s boundary fence.
The over 500 volunteers who are expected at the school, will join parents, teachers and about 1600 pupils, as they trim grass, clean and refurbish facilities as
well as plant trees, as part of Freida Brown Day activities.
That afternoon, following long-established tradition, students will match their strength against a combined faculty and staff team in the annual tug-of-war later
in the afternoon, to be followed by a festive barbeque.
Established in 2002, through a decree of the Board of Trustees, Freida Brown Day is an annual day-long celebration that highlights community service initiatives
by the university, in partnership with neighboring institutions.
