Barrick Gold Bulyanhulu builds girls’ secondary school in Kahama

By Lake Zone Watch Writer

It will be quality education for girls to enable them become professionals and lead healthy and productive lives. The assertion literally sums up Barrick Bulyanhulu’s main objective of building a girls’ secondary school for talented girls in the village of Busulwangili in Msalala District Council, Kahama District in Shinyanga Region.

The secondary school which is nearing completion, will enroll around 320 Form One students next year and is a fully fledged Ordinary Level institution, with classrooms, an administration block, a dormitory a well-equipped science laboratory, teachers’ houses, with desks and chairs and other essential facilities at the students’ disposal, according to Barrick Bulyanhulu Acting Community Relations Manager Zuwena Senkondo.

The main objective is to give opportunity to talented girls in Msalala District and its environs to unleash their potential. And because of this special feature of the institution, it will be producing a cream of future experts.The girls will not be walking long distances to and from school and will thus not be vulnerable to GBV, adds Zuwena.

“The girls’ secondary school which is being built for 800m/- has capacity to admit 320 specially gifted girls, to Form One and 80 of them will be enjoying boarding facilities. The problem of early pregnancies will be curbed because most of the time the girls will be under protection of the school and there will be no room for trivial temptations,’’ said Zuwena.

The headmaster of Bulyanhulu Ward Secondary School James Mukasa, who also doubles as the in-charge of the construction project said the new school will enable the girls realize their educational dreams as they will be protected from any stalkers or men intending to prey on them.

“The girls will be able to attain their dreams. They will also be safe from the trap of men wishing to take advantage of their situation so they could use them and spoil their future,’’ Mukasa said.

It will be a relief to girls joining secondary schools some of whom have to walk 14- 15 kilometres on a daily basis on their way to and from school. Moreover, it will ease congestion of students at Bulyanhulu Secondary School, according to Mukasa.

“The girls’ school will ease congestion in our school which has around 2,700 students,’’ said Mukasa.To show his appreciation, Busulwangili Village Executive Officer Asifiwe Ally thanked Barrick Gold Bulyanhulu for the school, saying it has come at an opportune time when many parents have been yearning for such an institution located in their neighbourhood so their children could have a friendly learning environment.

Education for girls can be quite challenging, given the various cultural and social backgrounds of society. Yet it is the best investment any family can make, as the adage goes,” If you educate a woman, you educate a family.’’
