On Saturday the 5th of November the Makindye Division and Fruits of Thought will join forces and initiate a new approach of city planning by organizing Mapping Day Makindye. This next Mapping Day focuses on the informal settlements in Kisugu parish with 20 participants. Dr Ian Clarke's administration, L C’s from Namuwungo and students of ISSU will study an outlined area by making sketches of everything they see. Features to think of are roads, schools, clinics, churches, companies, shops, buildings, land use, houses, water points and power lines.

Mapping the informal settlements in Kisugu enables transparent and efficient public administration as community members themselves can provide information about the features that exist in their communities.
