Government is planning to assist private schools through waivers on the outstanding bills on utilities and internet Data.

During the release of the school calendar ,the education ministry revealed that private schools will be supported though not financially.

Since the first COVID-19 lockdown of 2020 , the private schools proposed to the government to provide them with a stimulus package inorder to recover from the COVID-19 effects before reopening dates – government has not provided this specific financial resource exclusively to the private schools the way that some have been requesting.

Dr. Dennis Mugimba ,the spokesperson of the Ministry of Education and Sports said that  the government is engaging the National water and Sewerage cooperation-NWSC, UMEME, Uganda Revenue Authority-URA, and financial institutions to waive  outstanding bills until the schools recover.
