The Young Men's Muslim Association (YMMA) has made tremendous contributions in the medical, education and other social sectors in Uganda since it was founded 75 years ago. Founded by Prince Badru Kakungulu in 1940, YMMA has established several institutions of repute, including: Kibuli Muslim Hospital, Kibuli Secondary School, Nabisunsa Girls' Secondary School and others.
There is no doubt that today Nabisunsa Girls Secondary School is one of the best performing schools in the country. With more than 90% of its students qualifying to join university every year, it competes very well with the best girls’ schools in the land.
It is one of many fruits of the tireless efforts of Prince Badru Kakungulu and his henchmen and a befitting reason to celebrate the success of Young Men Muslim Association 75 after its founding.
