“Please allow me to extend sincere gratitude on behalf of the team travelled with to Kampala International University Western Campus team for the memorable O3PLUS entry and planning meeting at KIU Western campus,” she said. 

“I actually have no clear words to express the exact appreciation; what we found on the ground is beyond expectation . Apart from "cloud nine" hospitality services, the team at western campus is highly organized: We found 100% attendance of the newly established Technical Working Group team members (TWG),” she added.

The TWG team organized a skit on 03PLUS and presented it to the visiting team and also used flip charts to talk more about O3 PLUS to express the magnitude of violence among students.

O3 PLUS is a project introduced by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) that seeks to ensure that young people in higher and tertiary education institutions realize positive health, education, and gender equality outcomes through sustained reductions in new HIV infections, unintended pregnancy and sexual and gender-based violence
