NAKASEKE.
German volunteers have opened up a multi-billion primary school which incorporates vocational skills right from Primary Five.
The school - Ewaldi Community School, is located in Lukumbi village Nakaseke District and enrols vulnerable children majority of whom have been orphaned by HIV/Aids.
Mr Udo Weber, the head of development cooperation at the Germany Embassy in Kampala, officially commissioned the school last Saturday.
Mr Stephen Sango the school’s director said they will equip pupils with hands-on skills to enable them start their own enterprises after Primary Seven. Some of the vocational skills that will be given priority include tailoring and cookery
"Since all the beneficiaries are needy and vulnerable we find it important to give them survival skills early enough,” he said.
The school is run by Ewaldi Children Education Fund where Mr Sango also doubles as a Country Director. The school has 281 pupils.
