Empowerment is key to sustaining clean environment around schools

Empowerment of primary school learners is an area that is needed to be considered seriously if total sanitation is to be realized. I was part of the team that visited Achilet Primary Schools in Uganda’s Tororo District alongside colleagues from Plan International’s Australia, Kenya, and Uganda Offices as well as colleagues from research institutions like Institute for Development Studies (IDS) – UK  and the International Water Center (IRC) Netherlands. The clean environment was witness to the activeness of both learners and teachers at the school.

First day at the Pan Africa annual review meeting: learning and reflections

This was my first, but unfortunately, probably the last annual review meeting of the CLTS Pan Africa Programme. We started the day with introductions and ice-breakers followed by updates from the different countries that a part of the project.

First annual review meeting, first day, first blog!

Today was my first Pan-African CLTS review meeting and I enjoyed every part of it and also learnt a lot. It is my first time in Uganda after hearing so much of this beautiful country. Talking about firsts, this is my first blog ever. I am always enthused when I meet people who ask me to read their blogs and decided to volunteer myself alongside Sharon when one of the facilitators, Petra asked for volunteers to blog the day’s proceedings.
