Progress on Classroom Block Construction at Mother Erinah Junior School

My name is Robert Kibaya, a Ugandan, an Executive Director of Kikandwa Rural Communities Development Organization and current Executive Chairperson of Mukono District NGO Forum (MUDINFO) of over 150 organizations.

I remember, it was on the evening of 21 October, 2019 when I received a call from a friend requesting me in my capacity as the head of the District NGO Forum to accept to be the chief guest during the briefing ceremony of the Primary Seven (P.7) pupils of Mother Erinah Junior School. The last class for primary education level in Uganda is Primary Seven and it is at this level that qualified pupils sit for their National Primary Leaving Education (PLE).

At around 14:00 on 25th October, 2019, I made it to Mother Erinah Junior School with some scholastic materials to give out to P.7 pupils as per this LINK indicates:

What I saw at Mother Erinah Junior School, was so amazing and I realized that it was very difficult for them to get a high-profile figure to be a chief guest as most of them prefer to associate with well established schools for media coverage. I could not believe the school had over 170 pupils without proper classrooms as you can see:

When I secretly asked some parents why they preferred the school to others, they gave me the following reasons:

  1. -The school was the best in Bunakijja Parish during 2018 National Primary Leaving Examination.
  2. -The school is managed by qualified and hardworking teachers.
  3. -The school management relates well with the parents and it serves the needs of the poor children.

It was a very touching experience and when I came back, I decided to reach-out to some friends for assistance towards classroom construction at Mother Erinah Junior School. It took me again some months before a friend in Austin Texas under Bluebonnet Hills Christian Church mobilized some funds which we utilized to construct a classroom block up to this level below.

Lastly, more financial support is still needed to have this work done and we call on for your great assistance at this critical moment. In case you have anything to offer, please get in contact with me at: robkib@gmail.com
