Kikubampagi Primary School gets sh167m facelift

EDUCATION |

Kikubampagi Primary School, located in a remote village in Bombo Kalule, Luwero district, has received $45,000 (about sh165m) for renovation of its structures from the Rotary Club of Mengo and partners.

The club held a handover ceremony at the school recently. The event was attended by a few pupils, parents, local leaders and teachers.

The sanitation facilities that the school received include a borehole for safe water, a 20,000-litre water tank and a latrine unit with bathrooms.

The official opening of the facilities was presided over by the District Governor of  Uganda and Tanzania, Rosetti Nabbumba Nayenga. 

She was in the company of the president of the Rotary Club of Mengo, Ernest Kavulu, who is also the headteacher of Budo Junior School.

During the launch, Nabbumba urged the pupils, especially the girls, to study hard and look forward to taking up positions of leadership in the country. She gave an example of herself having become the first female District Governor of District 9211, presiding over Rotary work in Uganda and Tanzania.

"Take the opportunity that you have been given to study hard and ensure that you better yourselves and the community that you come from," Nabbumba said.

Speaking on behalf of the Rotary Club of Mengo, Kavulu  said the club realised that the school was in dire need of water and a facelift.

"We got in touch with some of our partners from Rotary Club of Sacramento, US, who raised the $45,000. We believe that the structure put up will be able to better the learning environment for the learners."

He added: "Rotary is about giving and bettering communities and I believe our club has done that and will continue to do a good job."

The headteacher of the school, Ronald Mukasa, expressed gratitude to the club and said they had been facing challenges of water scarcity. He said the facilities will improve sanitation in the school.
