Primary schools in Lango and Acholi sub-regions have received water tanks worth sh5b from the Netherlands government. The 1,041 tanks are part of the 22m euros, which the education ministry received from the Netherlands government in 2008. “At least one million primary school pupils will get safe and clean water,” the education state minister, Kamanda Bataringaya, said at the handover at Kuruma Falls in Amuru district on 19 June 2009. Part of the funds are being used to buy textbooks and to construct classrooms, teachers’ houses and latrines.
