The support of e- society contributes to ToroDev’ mission of promoting knowledge through appropriate ICT tools for improved service delivery for Education, Health and Economic Development.
ToroDev with financial support from SIDA purchased 3 desktop computers and on 11th July, 2017 they were handed over to Kabarole district officials to serve citizens who use the e- society. The support of the e-society came after Kabarole district local government sought for support from ToroDev to revive the functionality of the district e-society center. In addition to computers ToroDev has designed a website for Kabarole district, to see that there is improved information access and dissemination.
District chairperson, ToroDev team, Kabarole district information officer and members of media institutions in Fort Portal Kabarole district were part of the handover ceremony.
“I thank Kabarole district leadership for the continuous support given to CSO’s while executing advocacy work for improved service delivery, ToroDev supports you with these computers to enable heads of departments, district officials and the public to access the information easily on website free of charge”. Said the executive director ToroDev, Johnstone K Baguma

Johnstone added I know 3 computers are not enough for the e-society but as an organization we shall lobby for funds to purchase for the district more 3 computers and we shall orient the district information officers and ICT officers on how to use the website we have designed. This training will take place immediately the websites are online.
“I appreciate our partners ToroDev for the great support rendered to the district, I know we really needed to revive the e-society but due to lack of funds this problem has been there for years now, but we appreciate ToroDev for this support, to the Donors of ToroDev thank you so much for the financial support that has helped in improving the use of ICT in this region”. Said Richard Rwabuhinga the Kabarole district chairperson.

Hon Richard added, as a district we shall use these computers to carry out research, do our reporting on time and also account to the peoples through the website. I call upon you members of the media to come and utilize the e-society, to carry out research and give people evidence based information. We are hopeful that our communication is going to improve and we promise to put the computers to good use to serve the intended purpose of improving communication for improved service delivery.
