The administration of Acomai Primary School in Kamutur sub county in Bukedea district, currently operates in a pit latrine after rainwater washed away the existing structures in the school.

 

Founded by the community in 2008, the government took over the school in 2012 after Bukedea District Local Government posted teachers to the school. The school had an enrolment of close to 1,000 pupils by the time government closed schools in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, the school which was operating in temporal structures was recently affected by the heavy rains that swept away the buildings, leaving only the two-stance pit latrine standing in the compound. This prompted the school administration to shift all the office equipment including furniture, school records and textbooks among others to the pit latrine, which is also being used by the community in the neighbourhood.

Stephen Ogaali, the Deputy Head Teacher Acomai Primary School and only staff member found in the school told our reporter that they have written several reports to the district for help but nothing is forthcoming. He explained that several monitoring visits have been conducted at the school by both the local leaders and technical staff at the district.

 

We thank you for your generosity towards helping the acomai community, we appeal for more support in donations. Kindly share with your family and friends this will us reach our goal soon. Thank you

Progress so far

A 5 stances drainable latrine is on completion stages now soon to be used by the learns as schools reopen, there is still a need to add one latrine for teacher who have been sharing with the learner the same latrine!

This is just a rountine update on the works goin on, we hope to give another up date soon.

As schools reopen we still run to kind people like you!, without you we can not make it alone, we must ensure all students return to the classroom and are given an equal opportunity to learn.

This means reaching the most vulnerable, including the 1-in-5 children globally who were already out of school before COVID-19.

For every child, an education.

As schools are reopening, Acomai Primary School a public school is lacking classrooms to accommodate and provide conducive learning environment to these rural students.

Following the previous meeting, the school management, parent and teachers association contriuted about $920 for the bricks; how ever the challenging part is the soil texture of the site that desires alot of gravels and iron bars to set up the foundation, this has increased the budget by 12%. The District and Sub county will provide technical support like monitoring and supervision from the district engineer office. The fund collected through this crowdfunding has been held in a community account unit.

The VIP latrine is now on completion level we shall yet post the photos here by soon to show the uilding progress. and also attach the MoU with the district as per the development of the school

Through very generous donations through GlobalGiving we shall be able to begin theconstruction of the classroom block - the Latrine construction was started yet to be complmented. The floods in the place have halted construction when the land dries we shall surely resume the construction and laying of the foundation of the classroom block

Help us to help make the poorest of the poor to the best educated of all!!! We are all making the difference between lives in the wicked wheel of poverty - and the glorious freedom of choice for children who would never be able to make choices without a solid basis of health, education, and welfare!!!
