School Principals Get Entrepreneurial Training

School principals or heads in Mukono District are being given entrepreneurial training to equip them with practical ideas which they will transfer to students to start their own business. Dr Badru Kaweesi, the team leader at Makerere University Research and Innovation Fund (MAK-RIF) said they will help develop teachers and student’s skills freely in Mukono district and keep them away from searching for jobs. The district administration wants more children to create their own jobs rather than seek jobs. Kaweesi said that the focus is on universal secondary education since most of the students can’t afford equipment. Even university students are struggling to find jobs and hence the need to give entrepreneurial training at a young age.
