FEMRITE Supporters:

FEMRITE appreciates all the supporters who read her publications. FEMRITE books have appeared as supplementary readers on many schools' reading lists and a number of them are taught in higher institutions of learning under Uganda's literature. Many students have also studied some FEMRITE books for their academic research both at degree and Postgraduate levels. The publications can be found in the leading bookshops in Uganda.
