BWIGIRI Primary School in Chamwino District dedicated in educating blind children has been given supplies of various items and food stuff to enable it continue discharging its commitments.
The school which started in 1950 under the Christian Missionaries received 100 kgs of rice, 30 kgs of beans, 50 kgs of sugar, four perking brailer machines and forty special paper reams.
The items and food stuff was handed over to the school management by the Deputy Director of Information Services (Maelezo), Ms Zamaradi Kawawa.
Handing over the assistance, Ms Kawawa told the school’s management and pupils that it was a normal routine and custom for public relation officers to offer such assistance after their annual seminar in support of the society. “This year, we have decided to support Bwigiri Primary School.
That is why we are here today to deliver our support to the school which wholly dedicated to educate the blind to enable them make a living in future,” she said.
Ms Zamaradi Kawawa expounding further noted that, the government including the Ministry of Information, Culture and Sports normally take care and recognise all groups in the society including Bwigiri Primary School.
Receiving the support, the school’s Headteacher, Mr Samwel Jonathan, appreciated the support given and he said the assistance was given at the right time because his school was in high demand of food supplies.
Mr Jonathan also added that they normally receive operating budget fromthe government and other donors, but they don’t completely meet demand, so this aid gave them extra mileage to accomplish their task.
Public relation officers from all ministries, government departments and institutions plus local government authorities had a week long seminar in the new capital brainstorming on how best to disseminate information to the public.
