In a bid to match with the contemporary digital world, the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) has donated an assortment of science and technology equipment to Kikuube district education department.
Thomas Faustin, the UNHCR Head Field Officer at Kyangwali Refugee Settlement handed over such items as laptop and desktop computers, tablets, routers and a coloured printer to the Chief Administrative Officer, Moses Kapuloni, to enable Kikuube to be at the same footing with other districts in this era of a global village.
Mr Faustin also handed over a motorcycle registration number UFA 416N, among other donations totalling Shs15m as Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) aimed to promote education in Kikuube as a refugee host district.
He urged all stakeholders in the district to advocate for education for all children so that the district can have a learned generation.
Receiving the items, Mr Kapuloni said the donation will help close the science and technology vacuum which the education department has been facing due to inadequate equipment. He urged the end users to handle and manage the equipment properly and ensure they serve the intended purpose.
Mr Deogratias Byakagaba, the Kikuube District Education Officer called for more support towards the education sector in Kikuube, hailing UNHCR for the CSR.
The items were donated to all refugee hosting districts in the country.
