Braidwood Associates has teamed up with Heart of Midlothian Football Club to make a special donation to Busoga College Mwiri, in Jinja, Uganda.

Braidwood Associates, leading independent Traffic Planning and Traffic Engineering Services consultancy, has linked up with the African school through the Graduate Transportation Modeller, Grant K. Rugarama. Grant went to the school as a child and wanted to give something back to his homeland. The Ugandan was quick to identify a link with his own heroes, the current Hearts manager Csaba Laszlo and midfielder David Obua. The Hearts manager was formerly manager of the Ugandan team and David Obua is one of the country's best players.

Hearts star Obua said: "I heard of Grant's plan and I thought it was a great idea. Both the manager and I were happy to help him with a donation of full team kit for his school. His company Braidwood Associates came to the club and we were happy to help. In Uganda things can be difficult in certain areas in terms of sporting equipment and sports clothing and I have no doubt that the children at Grant's former school will be delighted with the gift."

Richard Braidwood, managing director, Braidwood Associates, said: "We have worked in most corners of the world advising on traffic management and infrastructure projects and when Grant asked if there was something we could do to help his former school I was happy to help. We obviously both know what a big club Hearts is and when we approached the club to agree this deal both Csaba and David were very keen to help us promote the agreement. Grant has contributed a lot to Braidwood Associates and this seemed a great way to help him meet his heroes while also helping his former school."

Braidwood Associates has supplied $2000 worth of Hearts soccer strips to the school.
