The community of Kasambya DAS, would like to express their gratitude to the staff of Food For Thought UK, well wishers the UK for donating a lightning conductor to us. We received a lightning conductor from Food For Thought UK. This lightning conductor was installed on primary one block near the play ground. Children, staff and parents witnessed the processe of it's installation on the 26th February 2016. We're all grateful for the support given to our school. With this support, we hope children and teachers are assured of their safety at school. As they will not be scared of any dangers from lightning, lessons will smoothly run even if it rains! The Food For Thought UK paid one million Uganda shillings(1,000,000) and the school only contributed fifty thousand shillings for transportation.
