The MMASS executive committee has high hopes and expectations for the Alumni association and one of its prime objectives is to be self sustaining rather than continue to be supported by the foundation board.
The committee hopes to one day contribute actively and significantly to the education of Uganda�s less privileged. Their enthusiasm has encouraged them to make big plans for the association and these include the creation of an investment club which would see the association carrying out significant business transactions so as to support itself, build its members and contribute to the scholarship fund for future Madhvani Foundation beneficiaries.
