PREGNANT GIRLS AND CHILD MOTHERS SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO CONTINUE WITH EDUCATION -NABAKOOBA

Government has warned parents against child labour and instead encouraged them to send their children back to school beginning early next month.

“All children that have been cleared to resume physical interactions at school on March 1st have to be supported to start.

Parents and all community members need to understand that it is illegal to keep school going children at home when schools resume,” Minister of ICT and National Guidance Judith Nabakooba ,stated during her weekly media briefing .

She noted that there are reports of children who are engaged in child labor and would prefer to continue making money instead of resuming school.

“I want to advise all parents to recall their children from wherever they are. This is the time to start preparing for school because we now have a clear time table,” she said.

Nabakooba said that child mothers and pregnant girls should also be supported to continue with their education.
