LELA Obaro Primary School in Omoro county, Gulu district has received a sh150m grant from a Canadian-based organisation, Ssubi Foundation.

The money is to be used to construct a library and teachers’ quarters. Speaking at the ground-breaking ceremony last week, the foundation director, Phillip Ndugga, said the project was meant to improve academic performance in the area.

“Two years ago, we promised to support the school. We are fulfiling the promise by improving the infrastructure,” he stated. Ndugga explained that they would build four teachers’ houses.

Each unit, he elaborated, would have a sitting room, bedroom, kitchen and a toilet. “The houses will be furnished with beddings, furniture and utensils,” he added.

Ndugga said the project was co-funded by Heritage Oil Company. The district education officer, Rev. Vincent Oceng Ocen, said: “Teachers should work hard to put the school on the national map.”

Ocen noted that there was urgent need to support village schools which were abandoned when people fled to the internally displaced persons camps.

Former Omoro county MP Jacob Oulanyah, who officiated at the ceremony, urged the pupils to take studies seriously.
