- ItemMeeting the psycho-social needs of people with disabilities in Uganda.(International Research Journals, 2010) Adebayo, Sanni T.The neglect of the handicapped children pushes them into risks in life. They find themselves dependent on the economically deprived adult who often has negative disposition towards them. The families of the handicapped children lack the basic needs to meet the yearnings of these children. The governments that ought to assist such families tend to give little support to the social development sector. The public, on its part oscillate between love and disaffection, and do not give sufficient attention to the problems of handicapped children. It is this situation that tends to constitute a paradox that this paper examines in relation to the psycho-social needs of handicapped children. The political economy of the environment of the handicapped children portrays a state of poverty and deprivation. This called for a joint effort of the public, and the government to rehabilitate handicapped children in the society. There is therefore the need for the formation of a more articulate social engineering to enhance the welfare of the handicapped children.
- ItemMentorship and supervision in Ugandan higher education institutions universities: challenges and prospects(Kabale University Interdisciplinary Research Journal (KURJ), 2022) John Michael, Edoru; Adebayo, Sanni T.The paper examined the current status of Mentorship and Supervision in Ugandan higher education institutions and universities and considered the ideal model of Mentorship and Supervision for a typical higher education institution and university. The paper then depicted the importance of Mentorship as one way of fostering effective and efficient service delivery at higher education institutions and universities. The ideal higher education institution or university should facilitate personal and professional development enabling individuals and groups to achieve their full potential. Mentoring is a dynamic way of facilitating such development. The higher education institution or university formally requires all its faculties to make arrangements for the mentoring of its newly appointed staff and newly admitted students. Mentoring at a higher education institution or university entails long time passing on of support, guidance and advice. The underlying factor in mentoring in the work place is that the more experienced colleague uses their greater knowledge and understanding of the work or workplace to support the development of a more junior or inexperienced member of staff. The Mentoring and Supervision discussed in this paper has been considered through the three strands of the mandate of the higher education institution which are: teaching, research and community service. Data concerning Mentorship and Supervision was obtained from a meta- analysis of documents such as reports, journals, articles and books concerning Mentorship in the Ugandan higher education institutions and universities. The overall mean score for the influence was 2.5 which indicates a low influence of mentorship and supervision on the career. The paper underscored the status of Mentorship and Supervision at the Ugandan higher education institutions and universities as low. Lastly, pointed out the challenges faced in mentoring staff and students and charted the way forward in the mentoring process at Ugandan higher education institutions and universities. Therefore, the study recommends that supervisors-supervisees relationships be improved to achieve higher graduate study completion rates.
- ItemValue Chain Analysis as a Catalyst in Gender Main Streaming(Kabale University, 2016) Adebayo, Sanni T.This article examines the value chain analysis as a catalyst in gender mainstreaming. Gender activities in the global world have revealed that, one sex has been marginalized by the other. From time immemorial, gender roles and activities differ, some base on physical ability and so on. This aimed at transforming mainstream policies by introducing a value chain analysis in a gender equality perspective. However, it has been largely used as an alibi for neutralizing the negative action in gender mainstreaming. The policy of gender mainstreaming incorporating gender sensitive aspects into external and internal policies and practices has been widely adopted throughout the international development community since the world conference on women in Beijing in 1995. Women are statistically the global majority; women cannot be treated as "a special case" but their needs and interests must be protected as integral part of any development policy as those of men. The paper gives an insight of the importance of a value chain analysis in gender mainstreaming.
