Build 10 Watertanks for Ugandan Rural Schools

by Rural Health Promotion and Poverty Alleviation Ini

Summary

The project is to provide water tanks to 10 rural schools in hard to reach areas of Isingiro district in Uganda; where water is obtained from rocky water reservoirs located between the valleys and open man dug ponds and sometimes from limited flowing streams that are contaminated and stand as a risk to human health. People walk long distance of 3 - 5 kilometers in search of water which has remained a challenge particularly to women and children who are tasked with the role of fetching water.

Challenge

School going children who are tasked with the role of fetching water walk long distances of 3 - 5 kilometers to obtain it from rocky water reservoirs located between the valleys or open man dug ponds and sometimes from limited flowing streams that are contaminated and stand as a risk to their health. Providing clean and safe water to rural school going children offers them an opportunity to get time for learning and improve their sanitation habits.

Solution

Construction of rain water harvesting tanks in 10 rural schools located in hard to reach areas to ensure water access and supply. Water tanks of 10,000 litres capacity installed at school premises to serve a population of more than 300 children, to promote good hygiene and improved sanitation. Our organization has in the past constructed 11 protected shallow wells and 4 protected springs; serving a population of more than 3,870 people from more than 645 households in Isingiro district.

Long-Term Impact

Water access, improved hygiene and sanitation practices resulting in children retention in school and reduced water borne diseases.
