Sironko district Woman Member of Parliament Florence Nambozo wants government through the ministry of education and sports to enroll teachers in the hard to reach areas of Sionko District to get allowances as a way of motivation and improve their standards of living and results.
Nambozo explains that teachers play a big role in every learner’s life because after parents, the biggest impact on a child’s success comes from the man or woman at the front of the classroom noting that yet teachers in hard to reach areas of sironko have no transport facilitation yet they are not provided with housing.
Nambozo made the call today while addressing teachers in sironko district as they celebrated world teacher’s day at Mutufu pimary school under the theme: “the future of the profession”.
“Its is so well known that teaching is a noble profession and has been highly respected across generations. It is and always was a very prestigious and respectful profession, that in Uganda if you are known as “Musomesa” you are held in high esteem.” Nambozo revealed.
According to Nambozo Some of the most affected and hard to reach areas that should be considered in Sionko include the sub counties of Zesui, Masaba, Bugitimwa, Elgon, Bukyabo, Butadinga, Buwalasi, Dahami and Bubeza
Every year, Uganda joins the rest of the world to celebrate world teacher’s day to mobilize support for teachers and ensure needs of future generation will be met by teachers
