Over six hundred (600) patrons visited the display tent for the purpose of acquiring NIRA services. Those who had all the requirements needed for; enrollment of National IDs were immediately registered and their biometric data captured. Those who also sought to acquire birth certificates or adoption orders and had the requirements were attended to. While others who just needed to have an in-depth understanding of NIRA services were given necessary information and brochures.
Over fifty government agencies participated in the World Bank group open day to showcase their activities and services. The event “Partnering for Development,” was designed to help the public learn more about the benefits and the positive impact of many Bank-financed projects was held at Kololo Ceremonial grounds.
According to Christina Malmberg Calvo, the World Bank Country Manager, “The Open Day is an opportunity to learn more about our work in the country and discuss how our support can have a positive impact on the lives of Ugandans.”
The World Bank’s Country Partnership Framework (2016-2021) was also launched. It focuses on strengthening governance, accountability, and service delivery; raising incomes in rural areas; and boosting inclusive economic growth in urban areas.
