Koch Goma Secondary School in Amuru district has received sh264m from African Revival, an international organisation. The project for reconstruction was commissioned on Monday by Amuru resident district commissioner Edwin Yakobo Komakech.

The school was formerly displaced by the Lord’s Resistance Army rebel insurgency in northern Uganda, Earlier, a girls’ dormitory, two classroom blocks and an office block were constructed at the school with funding from a bike-ride initiated by the Clean Sheet Foundation, based in the United Kingdom.

“The bike riders have covered 5,000km to raise funds to support Koch Goma establish its original site and have a better learning environment,” said Steve Jones, a member of the foundation.

“We channel the money we get from our activities through organisations. The activities generate long-term and sustainable donations.”

Jones said the foundation was planning to construct the boys’ dormitory, equip the library and support the opening of the school farm. The head teacher, Peter Tube, said there was need for continued support to the school even when it relocates to its original site.

There is now peace in the north after over 20 years of war by Kony rebels, which left many people dead, communities disintegrated and thousands displaced, especially women and children.

The Kony rebels are currently operating in Congo and the Central African Republic.
