THE United Nations Development Programme is funding a sh100m sanitation project in Kalisizo and Kyotera town councils in Rakai district.

The eco-project is implemented by the Rakai Women to Save the Environment in Kyotera and the Community-based Options for Social Welfare and Responses in Kalisizo.

“We have already started sensitising residents on how to keep their homes and the surrounding areas clean and to construct latrines,” the Kalisizo manager, Joseph Mubiru, said on Wednesday.

He explained that part of the funds would be used to construct six spring wells in rural areas.

The project manager in Kyotera, Hadijah Ssozi, said the project would benefit women.

“We have a number of widows who have no jobs and I believe that this project will help them save some money.”
Kalisizo mayor Sande Ntambaazi commended UNDP for funding the project, saying the council had faced difficulties in convincing residents to clean their homes and the town.
