St. Peter’s Kakariisa Vocational Institute, situated in Nyamweru Sub-county of Rubanda District, is grappling with the challenge of securing 25 million Ugandan Shillings for the essential renovation of its deteriorating infrastructure.
The Head Teacher, Mr. Akankwasa, expressed deep concern over the current state of the institute, citing insufficient capital that has not only impacted staff salaries but also hindered the provision of adequate classrooms and desks. This shortage is impeding the institute’s capacity to meet the educational needs of the community.
Mr. Akankwasa is appealing for support from well-wishers to facilitate the expansion of the institution’s services to the community. He emphasized the importance of vocational studies, recognizing the scarcity of white-collar jobs in Uganda today.
