The Water and Sanitation Sector is one of the sectors through which Poverty Eradication is being implemented. A study of the water and sanitation scenario carried out in Kigezi revealed a combination of both functional and non-functional structures and lack of safe water and sanitation. These non-functionalities and breakdowns were basically due to poor mobilization at the implementation level. With the community’s participation in maintenance of facilities, cost effectiveness will be achieved, leading to improved heath and standards of living.
