A number of stakeholders including the local government, non-governmental organizations and donors have invested large sums of money towards improving access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene practices in Uganda. However, communities still encounter water related challenges because the facilities are poorly maintained. This paper specifically discusses findings of the O&M of rainwater harvesting tanks in selected primary schools in Northern Uganda districts including Gulu, Kitgum, Lamwo, Pader and Agago. Roles of key stakeholder towards good O&M of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene facilities in schools are suggested as means to ensure sustainability of the facilities.
