A British man has accepted to donate forty solar equipments to forty primary schools in Kilak South in Amuru district.
Peter Droham, a resident of Oxford in the United Kingdom says the first consignment will arrive in Uganda in August this year.
Speaking to head teachers, School Management Committees [SMCs] and Parents Teachers Association [PTAs] from Pagak primary school in Lamogi Sub-county, Amuru district, Droham says, he decided to make donations with aim of boosting education performances especially for semi and candidate classes.
Kilak South MP, Gilbert Olanya appealed to primary school administrators to consider starting boarding section for primary seven pupils from first term. He says many schools in the district start boarding section in third, an idea he says doesn’t work well for learners.
Olanya also observes that with constant power, pupils can have extra lessons and read either late or early in the morning.
Kaladima primary school head teacher, Aidah Achieng says, “Effective next academic year upon installation of the solar, we will begin the boarding section from first term to aid intensive teaching for a better performance.”
The project is estimated cost Uganda shs.120 million.
