Kirewa currently faces educational, economical,
and social problems such as;
Good education entails; schools with facilitated
and qualified teachers, timely supply of relevant scholastic
materials and right attitudes by scholars and parents. All the above
are either inadequate or completely lacking in most schools. This
has led to poor education performance and increased illiteracy.
This is as a result of low yield of
agricultural produce, which fetch little income when sold, given
that a portion of it has to be spared for domestic consumption.
Depletion and destruction of the environment, due
to population explosion intensified by the poor support system where
people almost have to depend on natural resources. For example
people transforming mango trees into charcoal for money to obtain
medical care and buy food.
It is in view of the above
problems that (KYDI) have come out as a community based organization
to try to address some of them. Due to financial constraints, we are
not able do much. However for the last one-year of our existence, we
are trying the following;
Supplying monthly examination questions from
best performing schools in Kampala (capital city) to Kirewa
schools. This is in attempt to keep the teaching and learning pace
in Kirewa schools with those of town schools.
Putting in place a local education resource
center in our office located at the sub-county headquarters.
Sensitizing youths on benefits of education,
health awareness, and effects of early marriages.
Supplying moringa oleifera seedlings
and finding market for the products
