WASH Our goal is to partner together to provide sustainable, holistic, and high-quality water solutions to remote, rural communities in South Western Uganda. People living in these last-mile villages earn less than $2 per day, have low literacy rates (grade 2-5), and walk over 3 km to fetch water from contaminated sources. Irimya parish has an extremely high rate of waterborne disease. Our goal is to partner with the Mbarara Rotary in Uganda who, in turn, will contract Acts Uganda, a local NGO that has been working in this region for over 30 years to implement the project. Together, the Rotaries in Canada and Uganda will join together to bring clean, safe water through a Gravity Flow System and all the WASH training needed to see this region thrive. ACTS Uganda has been working in the specific area and has seen tremendous reception to their work. During COVID, they have continued to expand their work, teaching communities how to make soap, building more latrines at schools, and attempting larger water projects than ever before.- For Life
