Edith Aliguma the Kiryandongo District LCV Chairperson expressed her concern over the rising numbers of school dropouts and teenage pregnancies in Mboira Sub County which prompted the district authorities to prioritize Kifuruta primary school to benefit from DRDIP as an affirmative action.

“Most children in Mboira Sub County, parents themselves and those in school pay for their own school fees and requirements. Those who fail to raise the fees eventually drop out.” said Aliguma during the launch of classroom construction at Kifuruta primary school.

The 3.88 billion projects launched are expected to be complete and ready for handover to the community in eight months.
