No More Durty Water is delighted to confirm that four protected springs have been commissioned for construction by our fulfilment partner WaterCause Africa. This puts the funds raised by the Durty Sunday Social to immediate use in areas of acute water poverty.
The projects will benefit a total of 397 households totaling to over 1,191 people.
The protected springs will be built in the villages of Kabulasoke, Bigando-Kyooko, Kabulasoke and Kisaabwa in the Lwengo and Bukomansimbi districts of Central Uganda.
Two Village Health Team members for each village will be trained in WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) management, who will then further transfer this knowledge to their communities, where best practices will be demonstrated.
A five-persons water management committee will be established with at least one local council leader on each committee for each protected spring that will be constructed and this committee will be trained by WaterCause Africa in proper management of the protected springs and will also be responsible for leading other users in voluntary maintenance.
The first project is expected to break ground within two weeks, and take about a month to complete.
