Duramu elementary is a remote school in the Central Province that has being providing basic education without proper facilities.
Mr Kalaut said after visiting the school he noticed the challenges faced by the children and decide to help them with the desks and chairs as part of the community policing.
Head Teacher Rupa Abi said it was a first of its kind for the community to receive donation for the police
“I’m very pleased to receive the donation for the police on behalf of the Duramu Elementary school and the community. This will, indeed need have great impact on the community and the school,” Abi said.
