The idea of the research work was initiated and later `spear-headed’ by OYSTEIN and MONICA-a Norwegean couple that stayed in Katwe Kabatoro town council for a period of 9months months (from October 2008 to July 2009). Throughout their stay, they demonstrated keen interest in the plight of orphaned and vulnerable children in the area, among other aspects of their social and community Development concerns.
TUKOLE WOMEN GROUP therefore acknowledges the initiative and subsequent contribution of OYSTEIN and MONICA, to this research work, which has indeed drawn the attention of other stakeholders to the plight of OVC, with renewed interest.
TUKOLE WOMEN GROUP is also grateful to; parent / Guardians, individuals, local and option leaders in their respective capacities, for their material and financial contribution to the research work.
