Kabarole District has set out its vision of achieving 100% coverage of water sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services for all by 2030. This vision is outlined in the Kabarole District WASH master plan 2018-2030. It describes the key building blocks that will drive development and prescribes the strategies to enact them. Notable progress is being made in services and in addressing gaps.
IRC has collaborated with Kabarole District Local Government as a district partner since 2006. It has supported research, technical capacity building, collective action and critically the development of the district WASH master plan for Kabarole District. IRC continues to facilitate the implementation of the WASH masterplan, supporting the lead partner, the Kabarole district government. This transformative partnership was sealed in 2021 with a renewed Memorandum of Understanding.
IRC believes we achieve more by working to a plan together and through collective effort. And together we are currently focusing the power of this collective action on access to safe water and clean toilets in the health care facilities. In partnership we have also developed integrated and sustainable Town Sanitation Plans for four town councils in Kabarole, providing a costed strategic approach to achieving improved sanitation services for households, institutions and the entire service chain in these towns.
