The Rubanda District Woman Member of Parliament Ms Prosy Akampurira Begumisa has launched a campaign to fundraise towards reconstructing Karengyere primary school in Muko Sub County that was destroyed by heavy hailstorm last week.
On Wednesday last week at around 1:30pm, a heavy downpour that lasted for about two hours destructed a building at Karengyere P/S which accommodated a school office, 3 class rooms, and a staff room, leaving two Children injured.
During her visit today at the school, Akampurira launched the fundraising of reconstructing it where she contributed a total of 70 bags of cement where 50 bags were in cash. She also pledged commitments to look for other supports from government and other stakeholders.
This forced the Parents who were at the school on Monday to hold a meeting and agreed each parent to contribute shillings 50000.
The School Head teacher Clement Tukamushaba asked for more urgent support because the school that has an enrollment of 698 pupils is now overcrowded in single classrooms. He added that the reconstruction of the building is to cost approximately 300 million shillings.
