Improving conditions for Kasese Boarders
UHST Trustees have approved our first major infrastructure investment at Kasese Humanist Schools. We have agreed to help Robert Bwambale by funding the restructuring and refurbishment of the boys’ and girls’ dormitories at Municipal Humanist High School. The dormitories each sleep up to 25 students and the improvements will enable the school to attract fee paying boarders from further afield. Their availability will give those children who gain grade 1 in their primary leaving examinations at Katumba and Kanungu Humanist Schools the additional option of continuing their education in a Humanist high school in Kasese, which is closer to home.
The plan is to divide the two dormitories into family rooms, each with 4 double bunks to accommodate 8 children. Each room will have ceiling to keep down noise and to inhibit the spread of fire and diseases like malaria. General repairs will be carried out including improvements in walls and floors and repainting. Additional toilets and wash rooms will be constructed so that children will no longer need to wander across the school site in the middle of the night. Fire extinguishers and alarms will be fitted to improve fire safety.
Work will begin immediately and the aim is to have it compelted for the start of term in February.
