The National Social Security Fund, NSSF has taken its member-recruitment drive to new heights following the introduction of a new approach.
This was disclosed recently by the Fund’s Karagwe District Manager Ms Shani Mtani during a Public Education Seminar to Ward Executive Officers in Karagwe Township.
Shani explained to the WEOs from across the vast area that the Fund was now encouraging people from the informal sector to join it. She asked the government officials to persuade their subjects, mainly pastoralists and peasants, to register and taste the NSSF’s benefits.
The Fund’s plan, she told them, was to use the officers to reach out to the people in the area. If the project works well, Shani said it could be replicated throughout the country.
Responding to the DM’s request, the Acting District Executive Director for Karagwe Mr. Kahabi Ernest Mwinga promised to work with the WEOs to make the most of what he called NSSF’s progressive offer.
Subsequently, Mr Mwinga ordered the Officers to submit a monthly report on the progress of the project. Further, he directed them to take the message far and wide to bring in more members from across the board.
