The Arusha International Conference Centre (AICC) has donated 50 rollers of barbed wires to Kisimiri secondary school located in Arumeru district, Arusha region to support fencing of the school.

Speaking yesterday after handing over the donation on behalf of the Centre, the  Mr. Rodney Thadeus, Protocol and Public Relations Officer of the Centre, said that the support aims at strengthening security of the school which is bordering the Arusha National Park on one side.

“This school faces security challenges as it borders Arusha National Park and that is the reason for the decision by the AICC to donate barbed wires for the fence” he explained.

He also said that, AICC believes that the donated fence will not only provide the school with security but also contain the students within the school compounds and hence force them to concentrate more in their studies and improve their performance.

Speaking after receiving the donation, the Headmaster of the school, Mr. Emmanuel Kisongo thanked the AICC Management for taking quick action to support the school which is in dire need of having it fenced.

“On behalf of school I would like to express our heartfelt appreciations for this support from the AICC. As you can see this school is very close to the national park and sometimes during the night some animals from park would walk around the school compound something which threatens security of students and teachers”, insisted the Headmaster.

He requested other institutions and stakeholders to also extend hands of support so that the fencing project could be completed.
