Will you make a family’s dream come true? We are blessed to be a blessing to others.
In 2018 a needs assessment was carried out by our church and community mobilisation development partners in three villages; Katungulu, Bugomba and Kitabuli, they gathered the most pressing needs faced by different communities.
Sanitation and hygiene were identified as greatest problems facing these three communities.
Several households had no latrines and this was the greatest problem that the development partners decided to address.
With a small seed grant from the Kitega Community centre, the leaders decided to carry out sensitisation and awareness sessions for the entire community on hygiene and sanitation. This motivated the community to start doing something to address the problem.
Over the last months 50 latrines have been constructed, that is 50 households having latrines.
We would like to continue this partnership with the communities to ensure that more latrines are constructed:
£40 will provide a family of seven with a hygienic pit latrine, reducing illness and promoting good health in the entire community at large. The £40 will cater for the iron sheets, digging up a pit hole and purchase a concrete basement for a latrine. Other costs will be met by the households as a community driven initiative.
The “Zimba Kabuyonjo” or “help a family build a pit latrine” project is expected to benefit about 529 families; that is approximately 3000 people to benefit from the project in three different communities. The vision is to improve the sanitation and hygiene levels of many families and also to reduce the high diseases. The aim of this project is to establish a modern community which enjoys good health, which in return will improve healthy living.
You can donate £40 or more; then send a picture of your toilet at home so that after the project is successfully carried out we can twin your toilet and a pit latrine or latrines you fundraised for and then we can send you the latrine.
Thank you so much!
