The Nyarushanje Sub-county Chairperson Micheal Musiime has commended the good work PeerLink Initiative Uganda is doing in their sub-county and Rukungiri district towards improving the quality of education.
He made these remarks yesterday while presiding over a candidates’ reading day for primarys seven, and 6 at Nyarusange Community Library and Empowerment Centre.
Musiime says the non-government organizations through the community libraries have helped to train teachers, and parents and organize academic events the candidate’s day.
He added that bringing external facilitators to guide the candidates and preparing them for their final exams will help candidates, especially those who participated to pass highly in their final exams.
He further urged the candidates to always be disciplined and focused in whatever they will be doing in the remaining days if they are to excel in their final exams.
Olivia Mugabirwe the Executive Director of PeeLink Initiative Uganda thanked the participants for coming in large numbers and facilitators for working tirelessly to prepare and guide candidates as they head to their final exams.
She hailed headteachers and teachers for responding positively to this call and promised to continue organizing such academic events for future candidates because this will help them to excel in their forthcoming final exams.
She explained that all these activities this week are being done to prepare for the celebration of World Literacy Day which will be held on Friday across the world.
This event attracted 340 candidates from different schools, 260 primary seven candidates from 14 primary schools, and 80 candidates from both O$A levels from 6 schools who were guided by facilitators of different subjects.
The candidates were guided on how best they can prepare for their final exams, question approach, and interpretation and on how they can support each other to excel.
PeerLink Initiative Uganda started its first Nyarushanje Community Library and Empowerment Center in 2013 and since then PELI-U has supported the setting up of 25 community-based libraries in Uganda and so far has served over 39,000 people through its multiple education program activities.
