‘’As ToroDev we need data to focus our planning, sharing the data with leaders in our engagements to plan appropriately in resource allocation’’, said Johnstone Baguma, the executive director ToroDev during a brief communication to participants before the start of the training.

‘’Our partnership is on how we collect, process & disseminate data/information on line with visual representations on maps to represent what we have been doing as an organization. Our engagements will be now well organized on the map of Uganda for anyone who want to know what projects ToroDev as an organization has been involved in her quest for better planning, accountability and improved service delivery in the Rwenzori sub region and Uganda as a whole’’, said David Kugonza a trainee and ToroDev’s Documentation and Communications officer.
