Current goals:

  • We want to realize rainwater collection systems at several primary schools in the area; a selection criterion in this, amongst others, will be how many families from the community can, apart from pupils, benefit from the system. In rural Uganda, it is quite common for people who live in the immediate vicinity of a school to make use of its water supply. The actual costs will have to be calculated per situation, yet we estimate them to be somewhere between €3.000,- and €4.000,- for one 10,000 liter tank and depending on actual exchange rates. In case of two 10,000 liter tanks the double amount will be needed.
  • We want to construct toilet buildings consisting of 5 separate latrines at some primary schools where we have previously constructed rainwater collection systems. Costs of that are calculated to be around €12.000,- depending on actual exchange rates.
  • We want to build 5,000 liter rainwater collection systems in remote villages that can not be reached by a truck. Cost per system €425,-.
  • We want to provide in the Netherlands produced family size waterfilters to families in our working area that live at the shores of Lake Bunyonyi. Price per waterfilter € 25,-
  • We want to provide re-usable sanitary pads to (school going) teenage girls in need of them. For school going girls it is very common to miss several days of school every month due to their menstruation, because their parents cannot afford to buy sanitary pads. For €5,- we can help one girl.
  • We want to provide basic school materials to primary school children for an amount between €2,50 and €5,- per child.
  • We want to guide the two Batwa groups at Lake Bunyonyi towards self-sustainability in steps, whereby the next step will be providing them more seeds for them to start growing their own crops. Amount needed €100,-

Also coming this year:

  • information about the community house we want to realize and run in the near future.
