Improvement on the water scheme

Better Family Foundation (BFF) has for the past three months continued with monitoring and evaluation of the water in Muteff community.


In order to improve on the shortcomings of the scheme, BFF has extended the water scheme to other parts of the community. In this vein, one stand tap has been constructed to bring water closer to part of the village which did not have any water. Another stand tap and wash hand trough (basin)have been constructed in the primary school so as to provide water to the pupils and improve on their hygiene and sanitation whenever they returned from visiting the toilet. (We would have provided you with pictures of the work but due to poor internet connection we find it difficult uploading the photos).


This project has been carried out, thanks to the money raised through Global Giving and some from Shared World Visions. We are thankful to all our donors for helping to improve on the hygiene and sanitation of this under privileged community. Thanks also go to Global Giving for providing a medium for raising the money and transferring it to Better Family Foundation.

Facts about HIV/AIDS in Boyo Division

During the last three months Better Family Foundation has been blessed with a Peace Corps Volunteer who in his community need assessment carried out research in collaboration with BFF staff on the prevalence rate of HIV/AIDS. The research results showed that the rate in Boyo Division is 4.6%. The result analysis showed that the youth are more affected than any other age group.

There after we have been holding meetings with health officials on how to redress the prevailing situation. Also sensitization campaigns have been organized in  some secondary schools in order to teach the students prevention strategies. Also we have applied for grants from organizations like the PEPFAR grant with the hope that if granted aggressive campaign on HIV/AIDS will be launched in this community.

Also we have held meetings with some health officials soliciting for free HIV/AIDS screening amongs the youth in this area. All these meetings have been successful and we hope to continue lobbying for more opportunities to assist our youths.

The money we have received for this purpose has been put into use during our research and sensitization programs and we wish to thank our donors for such great gesture.
