Makerere University works together with COMPAS partner PFRAD, Uganda

Established in 1922 as a technical school, Makerere University is one of the oldest Universities in Africa. In 1949, it became a University College affiliated to the University College of London. On July 1st 1970 Makerere became an independent national university of the Republic of Uganda, offering undergraduate and postgraduate courses leading to its own awards.

Working relations between PFARD and Makerere University started in 2004 with the Evaluation of PFARD activities by the University. Since then the link between the two institutions has been strengthened through involvement in PFARD activities of both lecturers and students of the departments of Botany, Food- Science and Arts. Makerere University conducted the Community Resource Diagnosis and the action research for PFARD. These actions gave rise to the joint activities that followed, such as research in herbal medicine with Makerere University students, Phenology study with the University of Norway, Makerere and the rural communities of Ikumbya. PFARD and Makerere jointly present papers during the African Sciences workshop in Ghana (2005).

MUCCoBS works together with COMPAS partner WVIWATA, Tanzania

Moshi University College of Cooperative and Business Studies (MUCCoBS) is one of Tanzania’s premier institutions of higher learning. Established in 1963 as the Moshi Cooperative College, MUCCoBS became a University College in 2004. MUCCoBS offers residential courses, programmes of distance learning and tailor-made programmes. In addition, the University operates through a network of regional centres in the whole of Tanzania Mainland which carter for grassroots training, research and consultancy.

Making use of its regional centres, the University is involved in testing and piloting innovative strategies for engaging communities in sustainable, participatory development processes. It does this in collaboration with local, national, and international partners. Initially, MUCCoBS was responsible for implementing COMPAS related activities in the field. In 2004, it handed over this responsibility to MVIWATA, retaining its university role. The decision was both logical and strategic. Logical in the sense that the University does not have a direct developmental mandate at the field level; and strategic because working with and through MVIWATA is part and parcel of the universities mandate on capacity building for member based organisations.
