Stories and Community Profile

This project was to construct a new well for a school and surrounding community in Uganda.  We did this through our partner, Living Water International, and in cooperation with another group called Attack Poverty.  Upon completion of the project, our partner in the field reports…

When the LWI Uganda team arrived, community members were utilizing a water source that was unable to meet all of their water needs. Because of this, families were suffering from diarrhea and severe dehydration among other preventable water related illnesses. During the team’s stay, community members assembled a water committee consisting of seven men and three women that consisted of seven men and three women who assisted the team with the water project whenever possible. There is a primary school located in the community with 414 students who now all have access to a safe water source.

The LWI Uganda team had an opportunity to meet with sixty-three year old community member and farmer, Daniel Kato, who stated, “My appreciation to Living Water and entire school community who has been cooperative to make this water source to be here today. Am very grateful for everything. My fellow community members, you all know how long we have suffered with the water problem here but finally we can celebrate this achievement God has given us. The community is now free from water born disease and especially our children are free from the risk of drowning in our dam every day. I always worried when I see children collecting water at the dam.”

During the hygiene education, the LWI Uganda team addresses: Hand washing, how to properly transport and store water, disease transmission and prevention, how to maintain proper care of the pump, as well as signs and symptoms of dehydration and how to make Oral Rehydration Solution. All of these lessons are taught in a participatory method to help community members discover ways to improve their hygiene and sanitation choices, and implement community driven solutions.
