These last weeks, Aaron and Noah, our Project Managers at NiCA, have with others formed a hard working team to construct the first two out of five much needed landing docks for the motorboat that was provided to Bwama Primary School last year for the purpose of safely transporting their pupils to and from school over Lake Bunyonyi every day. The landing docks have become necessary to facilitate boarding and disembarking the motorboat for the children.
There are five places where the children of Bwama Primary School gather in groups every school day. In the morning they gather there to be picked up by the boat, late in the afternoon they are transported back there. With the safe and stable boat being much higher than the formerly used dangerous canoes, boarding and disembarking on the banks without landing docks is a big problem for many children and also, repeatedly pushing the boat back into the water from the banks is a heavy task.
With Bwama Primary School already having a landing dock, no measures needed to be taken there. However, for the five gathering places and while taking future plans into consideration, the construction of landing docks has turned out to be desirable.

We thank Thijs Jan van Hoek from the Netherlands, and also Dr. Patrick Treacy and Mr. Norman Page, both from Ireland, for making the constructions of these first two landing docks possible thanks to their donations.
