After a story of how Abule-Tubur primary school was published on this website on how it was operating with limited resources like safe drinking water, classrooms, and others, a Teso music duo, Sky Echoes left the pupils with magical smiles after donating different items to them.
Each candidate received a mathematical set and sanitary pads for the females ahead of their final examinations scheduled for next month.
The items were donated earlier this week by Children's Future Molders Africa, an association that was created and registered by the music duo in 2015.
According to Geoffrey Odiambo commonly known as Benza Man, their main aim is to prepare the candidates for the primary leaving examinations.
"Following past experiences, education is always paramount as it's key and very important to see that it's possible if the child is supported by the parent, we endeavor to see that the child is prepared as far as education is concerned",
He also added that they have previously been paying visits to different schools to teach girls how to make reusable pads and help the boys to get off drugs by giving them different support noting that their coming to Abule-Tubur primary school is to help equip the pupils of P7 with scholastic materials.
Rose Kalume the school headmistress says that she has hopes that her candidates will pass this year with flying colors because the majority of them have not been having the items given to them like the sets, rulers, pens, and pencils as some are receiving sets for the first time in the rural areas where it's difficult to purchase those items.
"This will help them highly in mathematics and am happy for the organization and pray for them to continue doing the same whenever there is a need, the school has been buying some few but we have not been able to give each girl a sachet but rather a piece or two when there is need", she added.
Benard Opesen the class teacher of the P7 class testified that three-quarters of the candidates did not have sets and performances were going to be low since parents didn't care and believed that they would record good performances.
Some of the pupils who spoke to this website were happy and appreciated the organization.
Alapo Lydia one of the candidates said that she was very happy as it was her first time to get such and believes that she will perform well in the final examinations
"We are going to work hard and vow to pass with flying colors", Ekaju Lawrence.
Meanwhile, Bob Owiny the Soroti district council in Tubur sub-county, said that he was very humbled by what his brother who is an artiste in the industry has done as it's so great.
"I didn't know you would reach this level of supporting people, as you keep growing as a leader and member of the SMC, I have not received any bad information about the school staff and surly appreciate all your support",
