Uganda water project

You could live for a month without food, but you would be dead after a week without water! Northern Uganda has seen almost 25 years of brutal rebel activity. To the north, South Sudan has seen an incredible 40 years of war and suffering between the Arab north and the black south. To the west the Democratic Republic of Congo has had a vicious 8 years of fighting as the central government collapsed from within.

A greater problem than war in this region is the lack of safe drinking water. Diseases from unsafe water and the lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war.

In Sub-Saharan Africachildren die each year from diarrheal diseases alone. Many of these diseases are preventable and treatable. The risk of disease and death can be dramatically reduced. The techniques we will use are rain water catchment through the construction of Ferro-Cement tanks, water purification through filtration, PVC hand water pumps, sanitation through building latrines and teaching basic hygiene.

Our projects in Southern Uganda will involve training a community of people, who then will share what they have learned with their neighboring communities.

This multiplication process has the potential to impact thousands of people in this region by providing them with clean water. This means that thousands of these Central African children will have a higher chance to make it to adulthood and the life expectancy rate of adults will rise from the current rate of less than 50 years.

With your help, we can easily make a major difference in the lives of these people by educating them in simple techniques to provide for their own needs.

Disease and death should not be a way of life for anybody.Uganda (/ j uː ˈ ɡ æ n d ə, -ˈ ɡ ɑː n-/ yoo-GA(H)N-də), officially the Republic of Uganda (Swahili: Jamhuri ya Uganda), is a landlocked country (except for bordering a lake) in East-Central sovereign state bordered to the east by Kenya, to the north by South Sudan, to the west by the Democratic Republic of the Congo, to the south-west by Rwanda, and to the south by Tanzania.

Buvuma Town Council leaders in Buvuma District have asked the Inspector General of Government (IGG), Ms Irene Mulyagonja to conduct an inquiry into the Shs billion water project.

In Uganda there is a saying that "water is life," but finding a clean, reliable water source is not always easy. Waterborne illnesses are common, and women and children spend a significant amount of time finding and transporting wat.

The Lango Safe Water Project ensures that rural communities in the Lango region in Northern Uganda have access to safe water and builds their capacity to maintain their safe water sources for years to come. The Uganda water crisis is serious but not unsolvable.

Nearly 24 million people are currently living without access to clean water. More than 29 million people are living without access to improved sanitation, and about million people are still practicing open defecation.

The most seriously affected and vulnerable people live in rural, hard . Uganda Village Project staff conduct follow-up with all villagers who buy WaterGuard, to ensure that they are using the product properly and to survey the household on the frequency that water-borne diseases are experienced.
