News from our WASH program in Otuke!

By Celine Schimek | Fundraising

Hi guys,

we hope you are doing well and that you are defying the gray February!

Since our last report in October, a lot has happened in our WASH program in Otuke. Back then, we told you about the successful implementation of the menstrual hygiene workshop. What has happened since then:

August 2023: Successful completion of the first phase

The first phase has been successfully completed, which means clean water and improvements in education for the communities. New wells, toilet facilities and educational measures were implemented, accompanied by a ceremonial handover of the school. The second phase will soon reach more schools.

November 2023: Second phase starts

Following the successful implementation of the first phase of the WASH program, the second phase begins. In a meeting with representatives of the district, school management and parents, measures were presented, the spatial challenges discussed and responsibilities defined. At the same time, construction work is progressing well, including the construction of latrine blocks and hand-washing facilities.

December 2023: Training courses and community meetings

Construction work on latrines and handwashing facilities at seven elementary school in the Otuke district has been successfully completed. Community meetings promoted the exchange between teachers, parents and pupils, led to the presentation of the WASH project and the decision for a school feeding program. At the same time, training courses were held on sanitary practices, menstrual hygiene and village savings and loan associations.

Thank you so much for your donations and your trust! It is only thanks to you that we can realize our projects and have come as far as we have.

As we are still dependent on your support for the further progress and final completion of the project, we would be very grateful if you could tell your friends and family about our work.

Thanks again and all the best!
Celine from Visions for Children
