The visiting team observed that, theAderolongo P. School was supported by government of Uganda through the PRDP, and other development actors including the UMSC who are the founders.
However, the visiting team noted that the school was heavily depended on government and donors and parents needed to develop a sustainability strategy to maintain the school infrastructure, also the school had not presented any candidate in grade one in PLE since 2009.

Let us support the UPE program by revamping the curricular and introduce skills training as early as primary school.
