Challenge

Access to safe drinking water remains the biggest burden for 72% of HIV infected poor women in Masaka District. With their bodies already weakened by HIV, these women walk between 2-4 kilometers carrying 20 liters of dirty pond water for home use. Without immediate help, there is a high risk of developing water-borne diseases and early death. Their orphans cannot access education due to extreme poverty and may become a cause of bigger community problems in future.

Solution

Select beneficiaries, Construct tanks of 10000 Liters each. Train community members in tank maintenance. Identify suitable schools and buy school materials for orphans. Poor HIV victims will access education, reduced diseases and better health.

Long-Term Impact

500 women and their orphans will have improved health to participate in income generating activities and in turn support their orphans. The educated orphans will transform their communities in future
