The Ikonza A.D.C Primary School administration in Hamisi Sub County Vihiga County has called on local leadership and well wishers to come in aid of the construction of classes and other amenities at the institution.

The school headteacher Benjamin Obaga who has managed the school since its inception in 2016 said the institution has no proper classes for 266 pupils.

The school is sponsored by African Divine Church that has aided the construction of few classes, but the shortage has hindered proper learning at the institution.

Obaga noted that some classes were built by funds from Hamisi Constituency Development fund (CDF) urging local leadership and well wishers to come in and rescue the school.
