According to Musisi, before the Indian Association stepped in Kasubi church of Uganda primary school was in a very story state. "It's because of partners like you that Kasubi church of Uganda primary school is starting to look like a school," she said. Adding that in the past five year, “KCCA has been mobilising support from different partners in a bid to better learning facilities of children in city schools”. 

 

 

She noted that KCCA has got 79 schools, which need renovation. "Every school we renovate, the school population goes up because it becomes attractive to the parents and children," Musisi said. 

The school has also received 335 iron sheets and 90 bags of cement from Uganda hardware dealers, five hand washing facilities and one 10,000 liter water tank and a donation from MTN Uganda to build 13 bio-gas toilets. 

Ravi Shankra, the Indian High Commissioner to Uganda noted that Indian women association in Uganda is more active than their male counterpart. In the past three years, the school headmaster Ssengabi Lecoboam, said school children population has been increasing.

 

Currently, the school has 1146 pupils. Ssengabi noted that they plan to turn the school into a model by constructing more classrooms, increasing enrollment, completion of construction of perimeter wall that has been started by school alumni, connecting the entire school to solar lights and building a modern computer lab. 

However, he appealed for more funds towards the development of the school. Ssengabi also requested KCCA support towards ensuring that the school gets title for its entire land. "The school has partial land title, we are calling upon KCCA to help us and get the title for the remaining land," he said.
