Atukubui Community Primary School in Kobuin sub-county, Ngora district has no blackboards.

The school that was started by parents last year, with total enrolment of 280 pupils, also lacks textbooks, seats, toilets and an office, according to headteacher Simon Opolot.

Opolot said the school has four classes from Primary One to Primary Four, with four teachers; two paid by the government and two by parents.

"We do not have an office, texbooks, chalk, blackboards, and seats for pupils and teachers. We also do not have water," Opolot said.

Olupot said the school has only one two stance latrines shared by both pupils and teachers.

According to the Woman MP for Ngora constituency, Jacqueline Amongin, there are six community schools in Ngora in the same state. She called upon the Government to step in.

"If we are to produce better Ugandans academically, then we must take education seriously," Amongin said.

According to the LC5 chairman of Ngora district, Benard Eumu, the process to hand over these schools to government has already started.

Eumu appealed to parents to continue supporting these schools until the Government takes over.
