Wash-programm Alebtong

Summary

After the first WASH (Water, Sanitation, Hygiene) program started in Otuke District in 2022, August 2023 marks the start of the project in the Alebtong region. At seven schools in rural northern Uganda, the project aims to improve hygiene standards, promote menstrual hygiene, educate about mental health issues and develop sustainable school structures with the help of various workshops.

Challenge

The Alebtong region in northern Uganda is characterized by a weak infrastructure, high levels of financial poverty and large numbers of orphans. Poor or no water and sanitation facilities and inadequate educational infrastructure and facilities exacerbate the precarious situation: At schools, there are currently between 100 - 200 students per latrine, which are dilapidated and cannot be emptied. Facilities for washing hands are not available and there is no access to fresh water.

Solution

In order to improve the hygienic situation at the schools, two blocks of drainable, barrier-free latrines are being built at each of the seven project schools, with an additional washroom integrated into the latrine blocks for girls, which can be used during their periods. Each block also provides hand-washing facilities. In addition, a handwashing facility and well will be built at each school, providing access to groundwater for the communities.

Long-Term Impact

In order to create sustainable change, we not only implement construction measures, but also conduct workshops on various topics. For example, we provide information on hygiene, virus prevention, menstruation and mental health. In addition, we strengthen the school management committees and the parent-teacher committees. Parents and teachers learn about measures to improve the school, including the maintenance and management of the new wells, promoting sustainable school structure.
