TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 4: MAYANJA: "It is my pleasant duty this afternoon, on behalf of my colleague, to open the Nursery and Kindergarten Teachers' Field Programme, which is taking place in Uganda. We are particularly honoured to welcome such a distinguished gathering of representatives form countries all over the world. We are equally pleased to see that not only is Africa represented at this course, but also that countries in the Far East do find these courses relevant to their own experiences. Madam Chairman, I believe this is the 10th course that has been organised by the Mount Carmel Training Centre for Community Services under the auspices of UNESCO, and i must pay tribute at this juncture to the tremendous efforts UNESCO is making in the education of the young and the old, especially in developing countries.
