A Germany based non-governmental organisation Simbia Germany Association has launched a feeding program for three schools in Manyinga district.

The organisation has also donated 60 bicycles to vulnerable pupils at the same schools.

The benefiting schools are Kaula, LaWanda and Milemba secondary schools respectively.

Organisation president Anita Bartch disclosed that her organisation was compelled to donate bicycles and launch the feeding programme to enable children have continued access to education and stay in school.

Ms. Bartch said she is aware that some pupils in the area drop out of school because of lack of financial support, good nutrition and walking long distances in accessing education.

“Hence the decision to launch the feeding program as well as donating bicycles to selected pupils in the three schools,” said Ms. Bartch.

She said the focus of her organisation is to help vulnerable children have access to quality education and good nutrition.

“And going forward, our plan is to extend the program to other schools in the district,” she said.

And Manyinga district education board secretary Kenneth Solochi applauded the organisation for the gesture stating that the move is a motivation to pupils covering long distances in accessing education.

“And one gratifying thing is that both the boy and girl child especially those coming from far flung areas have benefited from the bicycles, and this will definitely improve their access to quality education,” said Mr. Solochi.

Meanwhile, Kaula secondary school head teacher Reuben Ndumba has bemoaned lack of computers which he said is making the teaching of information technology subject difficult.

He appealed both government and the organisation to consider procuring some computers for the school.
