Ruparelia Foundation Donates Computers To Aiij

Investigative journalism is a form of journalism in which reporters go in-depth to investigate a single story that may uncover corruption, review government policies or of corporate houses or draw attention to social, Economic, political or cultural trends as well as loopholes in the legislation. With the vision to create positive and transformative change in community, the Ruparelia Foundation for the past seven years has worked together with several people championing positive change in communities across Uganda.
