ABSTRACT

The research on “Water Availability and Household Sanitation and Hygiene” was carried out in Koboko Town Council, Koboko District with specifically on finding out the available water

sources; examine the level of accessibility of the available water sources; examine the extent to which accessibility of the water sources influences household sanitation and hygiene; and assess the level of success of town council authorities in improving household sanitation and hygiene by improving access to safe water The sample was selected purposively where the people most affected by water shortages in

households, particularly the women were of significant importance. Purposive sampling was

administered on the community members and leaders because they experience the sanitation and hygiene problems in case of water shortages. Stratified sampling was applied on the district water board employees and health personnel who were purposely selected because they work in the study area and thus had vital knowledge about

the subject under study and thus satisfied the strata. During the study, the researcher took into consideration the different attributes of respondents such as age and sex and procedure therefore was based on demographic characteristics of the study respondents. A sample of 60 respondents was used in the study. It cut across the different ages and sex groups of the population, and it involved 20 men, 30 women, 4 Health personnel, and 6 members from Town Council water board and Water Aid Project.

The data collected during the study was obtained through use of self administered, interviews and observations. Both close and open ended questionnaires were given to a cross section of respondents to aid and facilitate comprehensive data collection. This instrument helped in generating quantitative data. It was also selected because of its ability to minimize biased and unwarranted responses yet provided a lot of information and freedom to the respondents to exercise their independence in providing data.

The study was both quantitatively and qualitatively designed through use of questionnaire and interview guide as study instrument administered on 60 respondents from camps
