The Performance Improvement Through Learning and Sanitation (PILS) project was implemented in six sub-counties of Gulu, Kitgum and Pader districts in Northern Uganda. It was spear headed by a consortium of IRC-International Water and Sanitation Centre, NETWAS Uganda and CARITAS Gulu. The project started in October, 2009 and was scheduled to end in March 2012. Interface Consulting Ltd was contracted to evaluate the project by IRC a Dutch Organisation under SNV.
The evaluation exercise spanned over a week, as Interface visited sub-counties of Bungatira and Lakwana. We used focused discussion groups and interviews, as well as direct observation on some of the practices that had been adopted. The main objective of the evaluation is to contribute to the analysis of how learning particularly at the decentralized levels can be improved. Learning is seen as a key strategy to improve the WASH sector.
