In January 2017, Piloting of the civic education project through religious and institutions of learning in Kyenjojo begun with the aim of equipping Community Based Civic Educators with skills and knowledge to effectively delivery civic education in their institutions, build a network of trainers to sustainably conduct civic education in learning and religious institutions. To this effect 90 civic education trainers from religious and institutions of learning from the sub counties of Butiti, Kyenjojo and Kyarusozi sub county from learning and religious institutions, attended .
The selected community based civic educators acquired knowledge on 6 modules of civic education that include access to justice, land, human rights, leadership and accountability , good governance and service delivery and gender. The same knowledge would be transferred to the trainees across the 3 sub counties.
The trained civic educators have gone ahead to train others on the same and a lot of changes have been realized across the 3 sub counties Kyenjojo district specifically Kyenjojo town council. Each of the trainees, after receiving knowledge on land acquisition and usage went to pick forms from the Town council and started the journey of registering his land. So far the first phase of registration was done and the district has offered a private surveyor who will survey the land and follow up on title acquisition. The outcome is important because other trainees in Katosa parish in Kyenjojo Town council will pick interest and also start registering their land.
