Hello everyone,

Water and sanitation provision in rural Uganda is still in an appalling state.

NGOs and the government have attempted to make significant improvements to scale up the coverage of latrines, drinking water but due to the increasing population, the challenges are still huge which has resulted to rampant death due to water borne related illnesses. The most affected of the crisis are women and children who miss school and walk long distances in search for safe drinking water.

Statistics from some of the schools show that the dropout rate has gone as high as 23.5% per year due to water borne related illnesses. The available water and sanitation facilities cannot not adequately serve the school children and the entire community. The government is still unable to provide enough funds for the construction of proper water and sanitation as well as hygiene facilities. The school administrations have been challenged with the difficulty of overstretching the water and sanitation as well as hygiene facilities to high enrolment rate.

Please help us for a hand dug well construction

United Helping Hands 4 Uganda a local Community Based Organization (CBO) aims at contributing to improving the water challenges of Bukonko Village with a population of over 400 households to construct a hand dug well that will be used by the community and the surrounding school.

This will help to reduce on the rampant deaths due to water borne related illnesses such as cholera, diarrhea, typhoid, etc. It will also help to increase the academic performance of pupils, reduced cases of domestic violence, cases of rape most especially on the girl child.

This project will therefore focus at construction of a hand dug well, carry out WASH education (water, sanitation and hygiene).
