Gicumbi District has announced plans to build over 760 classrooms in less than four months from June 2020, to reduce the distance children traveling to schools and the number of dropouts.

Gicumbi District Mayor Ndayambaje Felix said they will start building the classrooms from June 1 to September 30, 2020.

He said they will use various means to make the rooms available, including about 351 to be built under the auspices of World Bank.

A classroom should, at least accommodate 40 or 45 students but the Ministry of Education figures for 2018 show that in the Gicumbi district, in primary schools, a classroom had between 69-78 children.

Mayor Ndayambaje said they have reduced the number and now one classroom has 60 to 67 children.

He said new classrooms are needed because they cannot achieve the goal of building the capacity of the community without the development of education.

Gicumbi District Mayor Ndayambaje Felix said they will start building the classrooms from June 1 to September 30, 2020.
