Lukoto Primary School Update

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

This wonderful rural school in remote Gulu District continued to perform wonders.  They have added another class to the school – Primary Four was recently introduced. The teachers and parents keep the school and the compound clean. We are happy to report that the Japanese government has committed to building more classrooms, latrines and teacher accommodations at this school in the near future. The Ssubi Foundation acted as an important catalyst for development in this region.

School farm a success at Lela Obaro Primary School

Saturday, June 16th, 2012

Dusman just returned from Gulu where he was meeting with head teachers of the schools we support and Gulu district administration. One of the successes he reported on was the school farm at lela Obaro started by The Ssubi Foundation last summer to help establish a teacher’s feeding program. The food harvested from the first yield fed the teacher for over seven months. The school has again planted maize and beans and the teacher feeding program continues. Next year we hope to explore the possibility of setting up a farm that could provide food for students.
