Dusman recently returned from a visit to Lukto School… he writes “The clean environment, the pupils and the community at this school made me forget, that, I had endured three hours in the worst road in the country to reach this remote school. As you maneuver through the thicket, to reach this school, somewhere you approach a large well catered for compound and finally emerge to see Lukoto Primary School. Although, it was a day to the school break off, for holidays, the pupils were still at school and from nowhere, they keep appearing from the bushes to swell the numbers. Since we build two classrooms, the primary one kids are using a veranda, as one of the classroom and the old structure was completely abandoned all together.” We have also heard from the District Education office that a Japanese NGO has agreed to help build more classrooms:) The Ssubi Foundation plans to help build teacher accommodations in the future.

Listening to the teacher in class on the weekend, Dusman's visit must have generated some excitment
