One of Central Governor, Kila Haoda’s main priorities is to promote education and educate all children of Central Province.
He said, Central Province was one of the pioneer provinces to send teaches, doctors and council administrators out to develop the country during the Colonial days.
However, the standard of education in the province has dropped over the years and the Governor said it was his responsibility to lift the standard again.
The Governor stressed that there are a lot of young, bright and vibrant Central students out there, but due to lack of funds to pay their tertiary education fees, most of them are left in the village. This year the governor has set aside K2.5 million to pay school fees for all Central students in Tertiary institutions and Theology colleges.
He said one of his tasks was to lift the standard of education in the province by setting up colleges for those who weren’t able to continue their education. With the help of the national Government and the Queensland state Government, a Technical Vocational Education Training (TVET) College will be set up in the Province.
As part of the governor’s plan to address gender equality, he said the Central government will be sending five female students down to New Zealand to train and become pilots. Application’s are now open and girls with secondary or tertiary education qualifications can apply.
