Pupils of Kanara Primary School in Kamwenge are relishing using their new four classroom block and VIP latrines constructed by Hima Cement.
The handover of the project was officiated by the Hima Cement CEO, Mr Nicolas George, last Friday in the presence of the pupils and parents of Kanara, and Kamwenge District leaders.
Mr. George said “This is very important for us because we want to give back as much as we can to the local communities where we operate. Education is a priority, and with this classroom, we believe that it sets the right foundation for the students to work hard and build their potential to be leaders of tomorrow.”
The school, which has an enrollment of over 800 pupils is found in Kanara Sub-county, a few kilometers from the Hima Cement Dura Quarry. The construction of the four classrooms and sanitary facilities started last year in November and was completed in April this year.
“We are very pleased to receive these great facilities from Hima Cement, the pupils are already using the classrooms, with each classroom accommodating over 50 students. It is a wonderful environment for them to study,” said the Head Teacher Samuel Baluku.
