In line with our mandate, we are training students to diagnose societal challenges and proffer solutions towards addressing those challenges.

A team of our students participating in a competition, identified Kora, a community in the Central River Region, with acute water and sanitation problems. 

Within few months, this industrious team was able to mobilized support from the university Management, UNICEF, Swe-Gam, Department of Water Resources and the Ministry of Health with full participation of the people of the community to achieve the following:

A borehole & taps 

Started a cashew farm 

Animal drinking point

Built toilets for each household to stop open defecation

Solar powered lamp for the village center

Initiated a communal bank account

Organised a cleansing exercise

Organised an open defecation sensitization

We will work closely with this team to scale up and replicate such impactful projects in the rural communities with partners within the country and beyond.

Congratulations team UTG
