Funders of this project (European Union and African development bank), demanded that prior any commencements, international safe guards be observed so that no one is left worse off. This meant that apart from monetary compensation from government of Uganda, there are other things that are worthwhile to consider so that people who are to be displaced are not worse off therefore, their standard of living is maintained and improved.
For cities Alliance, the implementation of such initiatives seemed monumental for one partner to accomplish therefore, fostering such initiatives, other partners in the field of community philanthropy, had to be enrolled like ACTogether Uganda, given its enduring experience and the philosophy it possess in of organizing communities (saving groups) and conducting settlement forums.
These forums are seen as collective social platforms at all community levels( parish,division,city and national level), and take a bottom-up participatory approach, where community members are provided a platform to share concerns, set their priorities and make decisions in development projects like the KJE. In addition these forums constitute issue based committees that feed settlement forum committees.
