Somesha Mwenzako is a Swahili word which literally means “educate your fellow student”.

Somesha Mwenzako project is a guild student initiative at Mbarara University of science and technology which started way back in 2012 under the leadership of Her Excellence Nduhukire Sheila. She obtained this idea from the Annual Youth Leadership Conference in Nairobi Kenya as she was conversing with the Guild president of Jommo Kenyatta University, H.E Tom Mboya. The main objective of the project is raise funds (to up fees) for the needy students who are not able to meet the tuition deadlines and as a result obtain dead semesters / years and worse they drop out of school.
