To Empower Women by increasing Access to water

By Timothy Kibirige | Assistant Project Coordinator

To empower women, give them better access to water UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has called empowerment of the world’s women “a global imperative.” To attain that goal, we must reduce the weight of water on women’s shoulders Water, a human right, is critical for human survival and development. A sufficient supply of safe water is necessary for drinking and personal hygiene to prevent diarrheal diseases, trachoma, intestinal worm infections, stunted growth among children. I am the caretaker at Another Hope Children’s Ministries and in my field of work I always see adolescent girls, pregnant women, mothers with small children carrying water and have learned of the hardships they face when carrying out this obligatory task. First off, collecting water takes time. To simply get water for drinking, bathing, cooking and other domestic needs, women and girls spend hours every day travelling to water sources, waiting in long queues and carrying heavy loads – usually several times a day while on top of this, the water is very heavy. Therefore, carrying such loads over long distances can result in strained backs, shoulders, necks and other injuries on the women. In my area where I stay fetching water is very dangerous for women and girls because many girls are faced with fights for water at the water points as well as a risk of physical and sexual assault as they often times move at dark. Another Hope Children’s Ministries has taken strides towards increasing access to safe and clean water for children and people living at the children’s home. To fully complete the project there is still need for; Installation of a sub-mersible pump such that water can be pumped into the house because currently the water is drawn manually from the underground water well where it is harvested.
