71 classrooms have been inaugurated in Nyaruguru District, this Thursday, July 16, to reduce overcrowding and check child drop-out as well as reducing the distances learners travel to schools.

Besides, 96 toilets were, too, inaugurated during an event that was attended by the Governor of the Southern Province, Alice Kayitesi, along with various officials and partners.

Eleven classrooms have been set up in Ngoma Sector; Kibeho 10; Ngera 20; Nyabimata 8; Muganza 6; Mata 4; Kivu 3; Ruheru 5 and Cyahinda 4. The classrooms were built in the first phase of the government’s plan to increase the number of classrooms across the country.

The Mayor of Nyaruguru District, François Habitegeko, said that it was built by the Government of Rwanda with the help of the World Bank.

Habitegeko said the plan is to build 529 classrooms of which 300 are to be built by the Government of Rwanda and the other 229 would be built by partners.

Nyaruguru residents say that the classrooms will enable their children to learn from a better environment.

Ntakirutimana Evariste, a resident, said he once went to visit his son to a school and found more than 70 children studying from one room.

"With the new classroom, now we hope that they are going to learn better with about 30 students or less." he said

Southern Province Governor Alice Kayitesi commended Nyaruguru District for leading the way in building new classrooms.

"Just as Nyaruguru District leads in the Mutual health program in the Southern Province, it has yet again topped in building classrooms. This will help us improve the quality of our children’s education," she said.

She also appreciated the citizens’ contribution in the realization of the established facilities as the district administration would not have achieved much without their participation.
