Private Sector Assessment in Wakiso District;


Under the existing policy framework, Government of Uganda encourages the involvement of the private sector in service delivery including sanitation and hygiene promotion activities. However, the capacity of the private sector to effectively participate in service delivery is lacking in a number of areas. WaterAid intended to contribute to the strengthening of the private sector and therefore commissioned the study to identify the local private sector capacity gaps in Wakiso District for development of a capacity building programme.  Both qualitative and quantitative methods were used to collect data from informants and respondents at the district and sub-county levels (technical staff, politicians and the private operators) and NGOs/CBOs.  The report would be of interest particularly to development partners, policy makers, district and subcounty local governments.

Teachers and Science Teachers in Kiboga District. Workshop Report

Like in all districts in Uganda, the state of school sanitation and hygiene in Kiboga district was inadequate due to high enrolment of children achieved as a result of the Universal Primary Education (UPE) policy.  The number of facilities for water and sanitation had not matched the increase in number of users.  The purpose of the workshop was to orient the teachers to the promotion of effective sanitation and good hygiene practices through the application of participatory approaches.  Part of the workshop involved providing field experience in the use of PHAST tools.  The report highlights some key observations that relate to school sanitation
