All the callers appreciated the work being done by ARU in attaining women empowerment which is still a big issue in Uganda since most of the girls/ women are unable to attain university education. He encouraged the girls/ women within the Lango  and Acholi sub-regions to take up opportunities being offered by African Rural University.
