JAPAN has extended to Uganda a $1.5m (about sh2.6b) aid for a science education project.

“Japanese contribution should be measured by the output rather than input,” Japan international Cooperation Agency (JICA) country representative Takehiro Susaki said.

Speaking at the signing of the Record of Discussion (DoS) for the Secondary School Science and Mathematics Teachers project at the education ministry headquarters yesterday, Susaki said Japanese aid would double after three years.

He said Japan and other donors focused on post primary education and vocational training.

Education ministry Permanent secretary Francis Lubanga said the three-year pilot project aimed at improving teaching of sciences and mathematics in secondary schools.

Lubanga thanked Japan for the “onerous task of helping Uganda develop science teaching.” He said the first batch of the in-service training programme would graduate in September 2005.
