The Managing Director of Ruparelia group who is also one of the trustees of the foundation, Rajiv Ruparelia, has promised to continue giving a helping hand to the ghetto community and urged corporate companies to come on board with a supporting hand.
Rajiv made the remarks on Friday February, 8, 2019 while appearing on a talk show at 88.2 Sanyu FM where he promised to at least build more five modern toilet systems every year in each Kampala slum in the coming five years.
He requested other corporates to get involved in the project because with this, one is positively impacting the environment and creating infrastructure.
â€œJust by building one toilet in a Ghetto, you are saving thousands of people, and we want to use the same thing to build schools, build drainages, better hygiene for the Ghetto,â€ Rajiv said.
â€œWeâ€™ve got a plan that we tried to develop and put on paper and roll out because for us we want to have a long term sustainable plan and to have stake holders on board. We only use 50 bags of cement in the whole project, which is about 1.5m, all we are asking for is a good partner to come on board and say we are donating you with 10 toilets or 5 cements you require,â€ he added.
The Ghetto Research Lab constructs community toilets using empty bottles of mineral water and kaveera [polythene bags].
When asked about Kampala Parents School, Mr. Rajiv revealed that management pulled out some structures where, one teacher takes on a pupil for two years, from P6 to P7 such that one is accountable of the Childrenâ€™s performance heâ€™s been teaching for two years.
â€œWeâ€™ve done a lot of these strategic things that have helped Kampala Parents, weâ€™ve also managed to get a lot of young new teachers because teaching is constantly and evolution, you are learning every day, In a school, the way we were taught 15 years ago is not the same way my kids are going to be taught at the University, the world is constantly evolving. We brought in new young teachers with new teaching tactics who are attached with the childrenâ€ he said.
