Summary

This micro project will install a 10,000 liter metallic tank in each school (3 primary schools) in two poor communities in Uganda, the amount of rain water that will be collected from the roofs will be clean and provide safe drinking water & water for washing hands for all the 1500 children in these schools and over 1000 families, the water user committees at village level & school management committees have been trained to appreciate the scheme of roof water harvesting for domestic use too.

Challenge

These primary schools do not have any water trapping systems, neither do they have a nearest water source, the available pond is in a distance in excess of 1 kilometer away from the school, consequently a sizeable portion of the day is spent in the collection of water, children are the primary water collectors at school. The beneficiaries are young school going children 3-13 years of age who are from a poor community who also fetch water for domestic use after school.

Solution

The project will assist in reducing the water scarcity problem in three primary schools and the neighborhood, especially during the dry season. The schools require a minimum of 0.5 liters of water per day per pupil, this water is used primarily for preparation of daily lunch which is usually a cup of porridge, water is also used for drinking and washing utensils and hands, the nearby community also fetches this water for domestic use.

Long-Term Impact

The school administration together with the school management committees will ensure the water tanks are kept safe all the time. Our 1000 targeted households around the schools will particularly be targeted to improve hygiene and sanitation practices to promote good health for the children
