The Speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga has demanded government to increase funding to vocational schools and also promised to solicit funding and support for the vocational Institutes in Uganda.
This, she said, while officiating at the first graduation ceremony of Basoga Nsadhu Memorial Technical Institute on Thursday, 24 October, 2019 in Busiki, Namutumba District.
“I promise to work with the MPs and government to solicit funding and support internationally and locally from the government and other stakeholders to improve the quality of our schools so that they are well equipped,” she added.
Kadaga also expressed her pleasure with the fact that some of the graduands had already got jobs or were already productive instead of having to graduate first before getting a job.
She further advocated for more girls and boys to cross cuttingly take part in the various skills without leaving them to any particular sex.
