Executive Director for the organization Ollen Mwalubunju said though the reopening of schools has brought hope, the opportunity also presents a risk unless children, teachers and parents are aware of Corona Virus prevention measures.
Mwalubunju said sometimes young people tend to be careless when approaching matters hence the sensitization campaign.
He added that NICE Public Trust will utilize grass root volunteers spread across the nation to reach out to schools and to conduct door to door clinics on Covid-19 preventive measures.
