Project Description

Region: Africa

Country: Uganda

Location: Masaka District

Total Budget: $100,000

Areas of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment, Water and sanitation, Basic education and literacy, Economic and community development

The project is intended for a typical trading centre, at Matanga Trading Centre, with needs of clean water, drainage system,proper toilet facilities, waste disposal methods and congestion. The situation is coupled with idle youths,orphans and vulnerable children. A big number of children are not going to school for lack of funding and sometimes care. A majority of parents/guardians are are peasant farmers and petty traders thus lacking economic power.

The project is intended to alleviate the situation by: 1. providing a sustainable piped clean water system to the area from a source about two km away. 2. providing house-roof harvested water where piped water cannot reach due to distance from the piped water point. 3. Constructing environment friendly toilet facilities for the elderly and vulnerable families.

4. introducing a sustainable waste disposal system.5. providing a localised micro credit to the youth and parents/guardians of non-school going children in a bid to giving them income generating activities or improving on-going business activities thus empowering them to economically and sustainably manage their own affairs like providing basic education and literacy, taking care of their family health matters instead of just providing mosquito nets etc. 6. provide computers to existing secondary and technical schools in the area.

In other words we want to see a model village (a show case)in Masaka District.

We do not at this moment have a figure to place on the project. What is described here is a situation and needs we want to address. We have no funds yet. However the funds will be used as follows:

1.putting in place a water system comprising extention pipes,taps and stand pipe kiosks, collection tank etc

2.purchasing of plastic water tanks.3. waste disposal equipment/system. 4.construction material for toilets. 5. purchasing income generating products like chicken, cows etc.. 6. seed funds for a micro credit facility. The time lie for it is a year.

This kind of project can cost $100000.

All these are ideas we can develop and improve with willing international partners.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
