The BWI in collaboration with the Uganda Building Union (UBCCECAWU) organised a capacity building and information sharing workshop on the union’s experiences in monitoring the International Finance Corporation (IFC) funded Bujagali project consisting of the development, construction and maintenance of run-of-the-river power plant. The union shared its experience on how to use IFC performance standard 2 (PS 2) as leverage tools for realising the goals of the decent work agenda. Among others, PS 2 includes promoting the principles of non-discrimination, freedom of association and collective bargaining, and prohibits child and forced labour. PS can be used by unions when IFC funded companies violate workers’ rights.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
