    This is a very good development, the church needs to be active in education so as to inculcate a more scrupuluous society of individuals.

    We thank God for the support Classroom for Africa has extended to the South Rwenzori Diocese. The same organisation constructed beautiful buildings at St. Johns SS at St. Johns Anglican parish in Mahango archdeaconry. Many thanks to the bishop for his able leadership and being development oriented.
