Challenge

In Northern Uganda, about 40% of the population lacks access to clean water and is forced to drink from unprotected water sources. Even when water points are established, there is a failure of projects to sustain water points and behavioral change over the long term.

Solution

In order to ensure the long-term sustainability of its water points, Lifeline will take a multi-faceted approach to its project implementation. The approach includes but is not limited to: mobilizing communities to lead their own behavior changes, assigning responsibility and creating structures in which each stakeholder has clearly defined responsibilities and establishing infrastructure using basic technologies that ensure accountability, transparency and sustainability.

Long-Term Impact

Access to clean water has life altering impact. Interventions that provide clean water and improve hygienic practices can prevent 94% of water-borne diseases. In addition to the overwhelming health benefits, young women and girls can be empowered to attend school, start small business and participate in civic activities instead of spending hours collecting water.
