Turkey's state-run aid agency built classrooms and offices for a primary school in eastern Uganda.

Turkey's Ambassador to Uganda Fikret Kerem Alp and Uganda's Parliament Speaker Rebecca Kadaga inaugurated the facility on Tuesday.

The development is in line with Turkey’s agenda of improving the quality of education and the learning environment for African children.

Yahya Acu, country coordinator for the Turkish International Cooperation and Development Agency (TIKA), said their intention is to help children access education in a conducive and secure environment.

“This is one of the investments from the Turkish people and will chiefly benefit students and the school community in learning, teaching and their social lives,” he said.

Kadaga thanked the Turkish people for helping the government achieve their target of improving the quality of education.
