Mbale schools get resource centres

A total of 84 under privileged schools across the country will benefit from Multichoice Uganda’s Resource Centres programme, a Corporate Social Investment programme that enhances classroom learning experience through the use of digital televised media.
This, after Multichoice Uganda, donated digital learning equipment to 14 schools in Mbale this week. The project, now in its sixth year, aims to enhance the traditional classroom learning experience.
At function hosted at Nyondi Senior Secondary School, acting commissioner for secondary schools, Mr Bart Kule, thanked Multichoice for playing such an active role in supplementing the Ministry’s efforts to enhance education across the country.
“Investing in education is the best way of to have a delicate balance between a business making money and reinvestment in the market where they operate. Multichoice deserves credit for taking the first step in making this a possibility,” Mr Kule said, further urging schools that have been blessed with this development to maximise the opportunity and look beyond their immediate surroundings but in a competitive global village.
Multichoice Uganda chairman Steven Musoke promised to roll out the programme all over the country.
“Our plan is to double this number over the next few years because of the tireless support we get from the Ministry of Education as we run this project,” he said.
