A ten-stance pit latrine with a facility for disabled users constructed at cost of shs 46m/- has been handed over to management of Nakibanga Primary School, Ssaayi sub-county in Ntenjeru sub-county in Mukono district.
The facility funded by a German non-governmental organisation called Visions For Children was constructed by Katosi Inter Community Development Alliance (KIDA), a local body advocating and lobbying for assistance to less privileged communities.
The handover was officiated over by Mukono South member of parliament Johnson Muyanja Senyonga who advised local leaders to stop rising against individuals and groups bringing development projects in their areas, basing on political differences.
He pointed out that government has a lot of good plans especially for youngsters, advising that by fighting these plans on account of politics is tantamount to denying targeted beneficiaries opportunities to develop.
The chairperson of the German donor agency Visions for Children Ms. Hila Limar pointed out that education is a crucial component in the development of any society, noting that it is the reason they responded immediately when they were contacted by local leaders to join hands with the school.
And KIDA leader Tony Kabuye appealed to local leaders to endeavor to be part of development projects in their areas, as an incentive to donors to step up their assistance.
He added that by working with development partners, leaders play the guiding role so that projects put in place match with requirements of locals in their areas.
