Two weeks ago, I traveled to Gulu with Advocacy Project Executive Director Iain Guest to visit my fellow Peace Fellow Katy Dutile. Katy and I both arrived in Uganda in early June and she has been working with the Gulu Disabled Persons’ Union focused on water, sanitation and hygiene for Ugandans with disabilities. Katy has made tremendous progress during her fellowship and I really enjoyed meeting her GDPU colleagues and learning about their critical work in Gulu.
Katy and GDPU assessed water and sanitation conditions in 10 primary schools in Gulu and identified three high priority locations to build accessible toilets and hand washing stations for students with disabilities. Iain and I joined Katy and GDPU Program Coordinator Ojok Patrick to visit two of the priority schools identified by their team as potential sites for the project. The below video I filmed describes several of the challenges faced by students with disabilities at these schools.
