COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT: The community provided the land for the project and participated in building components such as masonry walling. Most of the support medical staff are from the local villages. Local families were asked to advise and decide how the community spaces could be best crafted. We have structured a series of community workshops, “planning clinics” and community visits to engage families in the planning and execution of the project. We are seeking approval of the local leaders and have identified ‘champions’ to spread our message and build awareness.
PARTNERS: Our partners include the Iganga Municipality (granted planning permission and advise), Something Deeper Ministries ( medical expertise and main funder), and Makerere University (linkages to research input).
