Community Empowerment Program

SNV Netherlands Development Organization in partnership with 8 District Local Governments, UNICEF and the Embassy of the Kingdom of Netherlands contracted OMNI-TECH to develop a Database system for Community Empowerment Program (CEP). The system aims at addressing the challenges that information captured is stand-alone which makes it difficult to do a trend analysis on timely basis and information to be different in reporting periods.

SNV Local Capacity Builders (LCB) uses the system to collect data related to Rural water, Community sanitation and Hygiene, Hand Pump Mechanics(HPMS),Access to safe water, Access to sanitary Facilities, Community Food security ,Hygiene, Quality of primary education and School gardens using the web (online and offline) as well as using mobile phones t. In addition the system generates reports basing on key performance indicators and all collected data is downloadable in Comma Separated Values (CSV) for detailed trend analysis. The full version of a working system was implement on 30th June 2013 in 750 schools gardens and 250 schools in eight districts in Uganda including ; Soroti , Nwoya , Nebbi , Arua, Lira ,Kasese Bundibugyo and kyenjojo.
