Using the Do-nou technology, the three-year Community Road Empowerment (CORE) project is intended to empower communities to actively participate in self-sustaining developmental projects to maintain their roads using local materials and technology.
Kamwokya is both a commercial (upper Kamwokya) and residential area (lower Kamwokya), and is one of Kampala’s most densely populated areas – dotted with poor housing, poor sanitation facilities and other living conditions.
During the rainy season, lower Kamwokya always floods due to blocked drainage systems and poor garbage disposal habits. The Ambassador of Japan to Uganda, H.E Kazuaki Kameda visited Kamwokya for the launch of the CORE project.
H.E Kazuaki’s visit occurred after the signing of a grant contract between the Embassy and the project manager of CORE Uganda, Ms Yuka Iwamura at the Treasure Life Centre in Kamwokya.
