Kabarole District has set its vision on achieving 100% coverage of water sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services for all by 2030. This vision is outlined in the Kabarole District WASH masterplan 2018-2030, which describes elements that need to be addressed and prescribes the strategies on how to address the gaps in WASH services in line with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. IRC has collaborated with Kabarole District Local Government as a core district partner since 2006, and supported efforts to research, develop and publish a district WASH master plan for Kabarole District. IRC in its programming continues to facilitate implementation of the WASH masterplan, with Kabarole district in the lead. It is upon this background that IRC supported the development of integrated and sustainable Town Sanitation Plans for four town councils in Kabarole namely, Kasenda, Mugusu, Kijura and Kiko Town Councils.
The objective of the Kijura Town Sanitation Plan is to ensure proper handling of human waste both within the households and institutions. To ensure the sustainability of this plan, a Sanitation Task Force was formed and trained to build their capacity in handling hygiene and sanitation-related issues.
