ActionAid Zambia has completed and handed over a water reticulation system at Muoyo primary school in Nalolo District worth over K190.000

Muoyo school has a pupil enrolment of 1,450 but had no water since 2012.

Interim Country Director Jovina Nawenzake handed over the facility to the Ministry of Education at a ceremony held in Nalolo.

She said education was not a privilege for the children but a human right, hence ActionAid's support to ensure that the school environment was conducive.

Apart from a water reticulation system, ActionAid also provided 300 desks to Lyamutinga, Lipaa, Mukukutu, and Nasiwayo schools in Nalolo District worth over K510,000

Girls boarding houses at Sianda and Muoyo and Sianda schools are yet to be completed.

Ms Newanzake emphasised that the provision of quality education was a responsibility of government and that ActionAid was only complimenting.

Acting Nalolo District Commissioner Mwendabai Muyunda received the donation on behalf of Government and commended ActionAid for its timely intervention and support to children's education.

He acknowledged that the quality of education and school tatedance had improved in other schools where ActionAid provided water reticulation systems such as Makwibi and Lwiimba.

He said the provision of desks for pupils by ActionAid in selected schools was also complimenting in meeting the class demand caused by the newly introduced free education policy by the government.

Muoyo pupils' representative Alice Nalushuwa also appreciated the support from ActionAid as it was much easier for the learners to focus and maintain hygiene.

It was a day of great celebrations for the school and the community as the water reticulation system was being handed over.
