Help Provide Clean Water in Uganda

by Sprout Care Foundation

Summary

Water is a fundamental human need. Each person on Earth requires at least 20 to 50 litres of clean, safe water a day for drinking, cooking, and simply keeping themselves clean.There is a crisis of access to safe and clean water in villages where Sprout Care Foundation operate. The water sources that exist are often severely contaminated with dirt, bacteria and bugs and the people must share the spring with animals. This results into severe illness and premature death as part of everyday life.

Challenge

Access to clean water is a basic human right, and an essential step towards improving living standards of people. Polluted water isn't just dirty it's deadly. Our children from the schools we work with fetch water from contaminated water sources which is shared with animals. Many of them suffer from diarrhoea. On top of this, these children travel long distances from school to the water source everyday. Education suffers when sick children miss school. Water-poor communities are poor as well.

Solution

Sprout Care Foundation will continue to make an impact on water crisis in our communities. The project will continue to promote rain water harvesting through construction of 10,000 litre water tanks at schools that are in dire need of safe and clean water. The project will also provide water purifiers and prevent contamination of water sources.

Long-Term Impact

Provision of clean and safe water will improve academic performance of vulnerable children. Economic Rampant illness and the time-consuming processes of acquiring water where it is not readily available dirty will be minimised. Children will no longer bear the brunt of these burdens.
