Team Visits KIU Western Campus on Joint Technical Support Supervision of 03 Plus


KIU, Western Campus – A team comprising of members from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Kampala office, the Ministry of Education and Sports and the Ministry of Health visited KIU Western Campus on March 20 on a joint technical support supervision activity.

The team comprised of Dr. Shallon Atuhaire and Jane Florence Abago from the Ministry of Education and Sports, Rosemary Nasaba from the UNESCO Kampala Project Office and Dr. Allan Kasozi from the Ministry of Health.

They were received by the Dean of Student Affairs (DSA) Ms. Florah Bamutura and the Deputy DSA Ms. Malkiah Haulah.

Dr. Atuhaire, who headed the team, said the purpose of the visit was to track progress of the 03 Plus project in KIU Western Campus to see whether it was achieving their objectives.

“We are trying to see the milestones the project has registered. Have you achieved something? Are there any gaps where we can come in to support?” she revealed.

 “We are going to interview people, those that have been on this program like students and members from the National Steering Committee to see whether 03 Plus is in the right direction,” she added. 

The team also paid a courtesy call to the Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Western Campus Assoc. Prof. Eric Mabonga before heading for a meeting with 03 Plus members in the Staff Common Room.

Isima Bagaga, a Technical Working Group member of 03 Plus informed the team that Western Campus had created a committee on policy formulation and research comprising of both staff and students and that they had over 40 peer educators.

Nasaba expressed her gratitude to the KIU Western Campus 03 Plus team for the work they are doing and said that they wanted to support them because the project is coordinated by peer approach.

“We are so happy to be here and are grateful for the work you are doing because I remember when team KIU came to Kampala for training, they did very well,” she said.

03 Plus is a UNESCO project standing for “Our Rights, Our Lives, Our Future” whose overall goal is to ensure that young people in higher and tertiary education institutions in Eastern and Southern Africa realize positive health, education and gender equality through sustained reductions in new HIV infections, unintended pregnancy and gender based violence.
