Three educational institutions that participated in this year’s investor of the year award competition have won various awards, reports David Muwanga.

They include Koob Institute of Health Science and Technology in Hoima that is owned by Dr. N.K Byenkya and Beatrice Byenkya. The school was recognised as the second runner-up to the best investor of the year 2006 in the small scale category.

According to a report presented by the Uganda Investment Authority (UIA) executive director, Dr. Maggie Kigozi, the institute responded to Government’s call for increased private sector investment in vocational education. “They have created employment for 20 Ugandans after investing $0.5m,” she said recently at Hotel Africana.

St. Lawrence Citizens High School’s Paris Lalais won the best investor of the year in the medium scale category.

“The project, licensed in November 2005, responded to government’s call for increased investment in the education sector by investing $1.2m in a turnkey education infrastructure development project with a conducive learning environment,” Kigozi said, adding that the school had created 78 jobs and contributed to foreign exchange earning by attracting foreign students from the Great Lakes region.

Greenhill Academy, which was started by a group of women, won this year’s Best Women Entrepreneur Award in the education sector. The school employs 188 people.
