Schools urged to seek project funding from DSIP

Schools throughout the country are encouraged to seek assistance for projects from their District Development Authority (DDA).

With schools instructed not to collect projects fees from parents, Department of Education suggests that they must be prudent in the management of the Tuition Free Fee that the department allocates.

If there are specific projects that schools would like to undertake then they have to make that submission to the DDA.

Acting education secretary Dr Uke Kombra said schools must seek support from the DSIP as it allocates approximately K2 million every year for education.

“Every Member of Parliament receives close to K2 million for education programs so schools must submit their project needs to their respective DDA for support.

“When DDA allocates its K2 million in the year, they can consider special projects in the schools as well,” Kombra said.

The K2 million comes under the Education component of the DSIP.
