World Bank Avails UGX554Bn to Secondary Education
The World Bank has availed UGX 554b as funds to enable more Ugandan children access and complete secondary education.
The funding is aimed at improving access to higher quality secondary education among Ugandan children in safer and better equipped learning environments that are also supportive of girls’ education.
The project is financed by an International Development Association credit of UGX332b, and a grant of UGX 222b from the Window on Host Communities and Refugees.
A total of 116 new lower secondary day-schools will be constructed, and 61 schools will benefit from additional classrooms in underserved districts, creating 70,300 new spaces for learners, including 30,000 in areas hosting refugees.
