UgandaKatanga SlumKatangaKatanga, Binaisa Road, Central, Uganda"Katanga is an urban slum situated on a flood plain between Makerere University (one of the biggest universities in East Africa) and Mulago Hospital (a significant government hospital in Kampala). Katanga is home to approximately 20,000 people, living in wood, mud and brick homes. Slim channels weave between these structures, often alongside open sewage, mostly stagnant until heavy rains and the subsequent floods come to disperse the sewage throughout the pathways and, not uncommonly, in residents' homes.  

There is prevailing poor water and sanitation facilities with improper waste management."

The community has access to water during rainy seasons only and after that the source dries up therefore they have to walk for longer distances to fetch water.The water is also prone to contamination as the source is open therefore most of the time it gets contaminated by Livestock or human waste. The water source can be protected from contamination from wild animals, Livestock as well as human waste. The problem of water shortage during dry seasons can be curbed by digging a borehole for the community and that will solve the problem of contamination and water shortage.

this question is fundamental in the development of a country because any development of a country must take into account the environment that surrounds it. So for the sake of calling public authorities on the importance of the environment and the issue of climate change. We decided to take action through social media. This activity not only provides people with real-time information on climate issues but also the state of the environment in which we find ourselves.

Local community know as the marginalized people can not access clean water in their village because of a lot degradation of the soil happened which has affected natural water sources and because of the vulnerability, lack of machine distributing water, poverty, lack of knowledge etc... I think the most needed option in this area is the Capacity Building to help people to understand the important of clean water and then improve the quality and quantity of water.

This is area mentioned above inhabited by so-called marginalized peoples, who have the same culture, have the same beliefs. As people who are still in this very traditional culture, it is not easy to convince them that they should approach the city and live in a designated area, according to them is like violation of their rights. it has been revealed that their daily lives were based on the destruction of the volcanic table forest, as they went about their work by cultivating agricultural, hunting, etc. which led to the movement as some of the fauna and flora threatened. Our Government plans was to promote the conservation of natural resources. it is hard to them to be settle in other places, especially in the hills is not easy at all to get enough water, most of their livelihoods are dependent on natural springs, as the population has increased compared to numbers before. Water comes from undisturbed markets, someone draws rain from mud and falls into the water, those who go to draw water are helpless young people who do not know how to protect it from damage and make people live in it. a serious water shortage in the area has caused many children to drop out of school to become their irrigators. causing the community to constantly have the problem of chronic intestinal worms due to the use of unclean water. They need a long-term campaign, in my group that aims to improve the well-being of the rural population, we want to do a good project that will support the national program until there is enough water and enough for these people. Once they know its value it will enable them to maintain it well and achieve it.

BangladeshKhulna Coastal belt communities
The coastal communities of Dacope under Khulna (Adjacent to Sundarban mangrove forest) is greatly affected by the natural calamities like flood, cyclone, storm, river bank brokenness by heavy water pressure etc thus most of the land of this area is heavily impacted by salt intrusion. Due to heavy soil salinity here drinking water tubewells are not possible to install. The only source of drinking water in this area is the pond water and rain water. Sometimes people use to drink the river water when it is fresh during rainy season. So the cheap and easy solution of drinking water here is harvesting the rain water in the plastic or concrete tank. If we can harvest and preserve rain water properly then people of this region will be benefitted in the long run.

Name of your organization: Youth and Women for Opportunities Uganda-YWOU
Address of the organization: Plot 16 Bugondo Crescent Senior Quarters Soroti
In which country do you work? Uganda

Brief description of your organization
What is the budget of the project?
Drill/construct 1 borehole with inbuilt hand washing facilities installed with 20,000L water tank, solar mortised pump facility and piping water to the neighboring communities that lack water and install water stand points
Who are the direct and indirect beneficiaries of the project? Pupils 1,300 [800 girls and 500 Boys] and 2,500 people from the surrounding community will benefit from the newly drilled borehole
The community of Awasi has more people belonging to poor and lower class and they are illiterate. There is only one primary school with very little support from government, it does not have any water facility for clean and safe water and has dilapidated sanitation facilities, the school is located 1/2Km from the swamp ponds. Pupils and the community defecate in the open field and drink dirty water from the lake, girls fear and are unwilling to defecate in the open, therefore they do not want to go to school and they escape and/or absentee themselves regularly or opt to drop out of school completely. This has led to many girls to drop out of school and poor attendance for girls at school. 1,300 pupils do not have a school borehole, there is high scarcity and supply of clean portable with very dire need for sanitation facilities. Women, girls, boys from a community and school children have to spend more than 2 hours to fetch dirty water from a distant small lake and carrying water on their heads and during break and lunch time school children run down the lake to drink dirty water in ponds that salty and hard water. Pupils have to stand in a queue to use the same existing full pit-latrine during break or lunch time. As a result, most of them delay returning to classes and often they defecate and urinate in the open in the bushes around the school to catch up with time.

People consume water without treatment, However, other people the community also trek to the lake to wash their clothes and bodies and/or take water from a distant lake to their homes, and they use that water to wash dirty cloths, dishes, other materials and bodies and while in the lake the people and animals defecate in the open around the water sources. In addition to that, animals also use that same water source as a water drinking facility. As a result, people and pupils are exposed to water-borne disease such as cholera, dysentery, diarrhea, amoebiosis, hepatitis and typhoid and the water-related diseases still remain rampant in Awasi area, this has led to water-borne disease and deaths. Almost half of the people in the community visit local clinics though the water borne-related diseases while in other areas in the country have improved.

At the same time a lot of mosquitoes breed around the water source, which makes children and women at risk of malaria. A school with adequate WASH is one in which the whole school community carries out key practices of using improved sanitation facilities, hand washing with soap at critical times, and drinking safe clean water. In Awasi has neighboring school, which has 1,300 poor pupils, has only 1 pit latrine which got fully filled up just after half a year. Pupils have to stand in a queue to use the same existing full pit-latrine during break or lunch time. As a result, most of them delay returning to classes and often defecate and urinate in the open in the bushes around the school to catch up with time. Pupils do not have enough knowledge about importance of using pit-latrines and hand-washing. In addition to that, the school lack hand washing facilities- since there is severe lack of water it has affected health, hygiene and the economic condition of local people. At-least 4 out of every 10 children in the school are infected with water-borne diseases every year, therefore, local public health authority regularly closes down the school temporarily due to due to outbreak of the diseases and lack of sanitation facilities and water yet the parents are too poor to construct a borehole and toilet for the children in the school nor does the government provide funding for the same. The project will also strongly focus on activities that promote MHM, including creation of safe, clean, and private spaces for girls to change and wash; and MHM education as part of a school curriculum, healthy club, as well as access to sanitary towels.

Brief description of the project we are seeking funding for
Water and Sanitation for Life Skills project in Awasi is intended to improve and promote access to safe and clean water and provide sanitation facilities to enhance communities’ awareness on sanitation among the pupils and communities of Awasi in Soroti district, Uganda. The project will hold meetings to explain the project, and construct/drill 1 borehole in the school and install it with a water filter to serve the 1,300 pupils [ 800 girls and 500 boys] and the surrounding community 2,500 people and hold workshops and trainings for pupils and a community on water borne related diseases, health and hygiene awareness among the pupils and the community and establish water management committees and train on the operation and maintenance framework of the borehole and carry out water quality tests by taking water samples to National Water and Sewerage Corporation Laboratory in Soroti for analysis. Equipping Awasi primary school with re-usable pit-latrines and hand-washing facilities and providing skills in hand-washing and importance of pit-latrines, to target 1,300 pupils of Awasi primary school the project will also construct 1 re-usable 5 stance girl-friendly VIP-pit-latrines with inbuilt hand washing facilities installed with 500L water tank for rain water harvesting facility, the pit will have provision of emptying when full 1 for the girls and 1 hand washing facilities with water tank for the girls an provide trainings on usage of pit latrine and awareness raising about importance of pit latrine, establishment of operation and maintenance committee and build the capacity of 1,300 pupils in the school with skills in hand-washing and importance of using pit- The project will ensure child education through construction of hygienic sanitary facilities like latrine & water supply. This initiative sought to offer a long-term and proven benefit of clean and safe water for a local school children in Awasi by providing a sustainable alternate source of clean safe water that will be used for drinking, cooking, hand washing and construction of sanitary facilities that will uphold hygienic environment for school going children including during menstruation cycles. The primary goal of this project is to help mitigate the current lack of water and poor sanitary facilities in Awasi community and thus help address the water borne -related health problems among the children and community. The project will provide equipments and facilities that children need for sanitation, hand-washing, and water supply.

The provision of hygienic sanitary facilities in public primary schools is an initiative to save lives and reduce suffering to school children who lack these basic services as well as provide good environment for learning. The project installs rain water harvesting facilities and equipments including gutters, as well as construction of 1 girl friendly toilet for girls since the girls do not have safe and private spaces within the school to manage their periods since the toilet are shared by the boys and teachers so we want construct a separate toilet for girls to ensure a separate toilets for boys and girls is available the boys and teachers will continue to use the old toilet. The toilet block of the girls will get a small laundry room, where they can wash and change when they are menstruating. In addition, provide water in the toilets of girls so that water is available using 500L rain water harvesting facility that will provide hand washing containers and rubbish pits for proper disposal of waste In addition we will carry out hygiene promotion activities geared at engendering behaviour change on water and sanitation hygiene in the interest of maximizing on benefits from water and sanitation facilities termly

Prospected output and outcome of the project
Construct girl-friendly ventilated latrine, hand washing facility and rain water harvesting facility which will assist the adolescent girls in attaining menstrual hygiene and thus removing fears about attending classes with the ultimate goal of reducing complete school dropout rates and absenteeism, reduce the outbreak of diseases such as cholera, diarrhea, dysentery and typhoid among the children. Various workshops related to health and hygiene issues will be carried out to ensure that children and school staff know how to reduce the risks of contracting water and sanitation related diseases by ensuring the availability of facilities like pit latrines and sanitary pads
Beneficiaries’ contributions and Stakeholder participation
The community will participate through provision unskilled labour force during the construction of the pit latrine such as digging the 30ft deep latrine hole, fetching water, raising timber up, storage and security of construction materials, Provide locally available materials such as sand, marum, water, timber and provide security for various project assets, Monitor and evaluate the progress of the work, Manage and maintain the pit-latrine after commissioning. The pupils can also contribute into the design of the latrines to suit their needs. Full participation of communities in Awasi community and during its implementation beneficiaries will participate in planning, implementation, capacity building, monitoring and evaluation will be prioritized so as to enhance beneficiary ownership of the project activities and results. They will also contribute land and labour to open the land. Partners/pupils/PTTA/SMC and St. Andrew’s primary school that were involved in the development of this project and will play a role in its implementation; YWOU, Soroti district Local governments and community structures, YWOU’s key roles will be planning, coordination, implementing, reporting, monitoring and evaluation and be responsible for day to day execution of project activities

Implementation strategy/approach
Previous experience- YWOU will draw on its experience in school based programing adapting already tested strategies like the School Development Planning and the whole school approach and Menstrual Hygiene Manual developed for the school level trainings
Child safeguarding and protection – YWOU will ensure that child safeguarding and protection will feature strongly, from ensuring that implementers observe our children protection guidelines, to making sure construction sites and the WASH outputs themselves are safe for children.
Gender – boys and girls face different issues when it comes to WASH, these respective needs will therefore be incorporated and monitored throughout the project. Specifically, sanitary facilities for girls in schools will be inclusive and incorporate a washroom for girls to clean themselves during menstruation. Boys and girls; female and males teachers; and, female and male parents will be trained on menstrual hygiene management and production of low cost sanitary pads. This will ensure that, rather than ridicule, boys and male parents and teachers will offer the necessary support to the girls during their menstruation periods.
Monitoring evaluation and learning- by the nature of the project, there is need to generate evidence and learning to inform the policy dialogue at district and national level. Secondly, from an organisational perspective YWOU ensures every project provides a learning to improve our programming. Therefore at least two learning questions shall be generated and tracked over the project period.
Beneficiary participation- There will be a deliberate effort to have the contribution and participation of the beneficiaries feature prominently in the project implementation and monitoring. For example there may be a requirement for schools to make a contribution in providing affordable sanitary facilities like basins, Jerri cans, committing to maintenance of the established facilities, washable sanitary towels among others
Whole school improvement approach- targeting all aspects of the schools: the pupils, the teachers, the management and the parents. YWOU will work through school structures, newly established and the existing ones. The health club patrons will be contact persons in the schools ensuring the WASH issues are prioritised and monitored.
Project management- the atoo neepepe Leave No School Behind project will be led by YWOU. However, YWOU will establish a satellite office in communities and schools and employ a Program Officer and Program Assistant for the direct implementation of the project. YWOU will call upon Serere district local government engineer to support with the technical supervision of WASH works; this will be in addition to the role of the district officials.

Red Zone - Poor access to safe water,,,
NigeriaFCTZokutu CommunityAbaji Central Mosque, Lokoja RoadWater is a right, everywhere across the world. Nigeria, Africa’s most populated country, should be no exception. Across Nigeria, only 31% of the population has access to safe water sources on their premises, such as boreholes, piped water, protected dug wells, and packaged water.

Beyond the radiance and lushness of Nigeria’s federal capital city, Abuja, some rural communities around the city live in abject water poverty. This is because the country’s federal government has not provided amenities for water provision within the city center. Most of the residents in local areas also live in unauthorized settlements, which makes it nearly impossible for the government to provide them with water because they are not recognized as official residents.

This water crisis has posed serious health-related challenges and continuously limits the economic growth in the country. In local communities like Zokutu — located in Kuje Area Council, one of the six area councils in Nigeria’s federal capital territory — limited access to water has greatly hindered activities like farming, food processing, and education.
