Rebecca kadaga the speaker of parliament is requesting for more investment in the girl child vocational education.
Kadaga said that most children in both urban and rural but mostly rural have failed to make it to higher education despite the good grades in P7 S4 and S6 respectively.
“Today Children with some vocational skills stand a better chance to earn a living even before the completion of their courses. And I ask parents to send their daughters to vocational schools.”
The speaker spoke this as they were launching the Kakira Sugar Busoga foundation scholarship that will improve the well-being of Busoga education. It’s said that the management of Kakira Sugar has pledged a 15 year campaign to support students mainly in the Busoga region and this program was kick started with Busoga University receiving two scholarships.
The speaker noted to Madhvani that schools in Busoga region are in bad state and having these youths with technical skills we need laboratories. She promised to engage government in this innovation and discussions on the sugar zoning policy are going to be underway as soon as parliament resumes.
During the speech, Mr Madhvani said the Kakira Sugar Industry is pumping 400 million shillings in the scholarship and vowed to keep supporting students with good results in the region in order to boost educational standards.
