Areas of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment, Water and sanitation, Maternal and child health, Economic and community development

The proposed project aims at addressing the water challenges in Kiwoko Town Council, Kikamulo, Wakyato and Kito Sub-Counties. The global challenge of accessing clean and safe water is now estimated at over 700 million people of whom half are living in Sub-Saharan Africa.

The proposed project will have the following objectives;

1. To improve accessibility to safe and clean water for mainly vulnerable groups such as people living with HIV/AIDS, school children and health centres

2. To mitigate girls' absenteeism and drop-out from school

3. To contribute to the improvement of health condition of people living with HIV/AIDS

4. To enhance income for women, girls and male youths

The project duration will be 12 months; however, the start of the project is dependent on the full mobilization of the financial resources required.The project funds will be used for the following activities;

1. Community mobilization campaigns

2. Sanitation and hygiene awareness seminars

3. Procurement of rain water harvesting tanks and all other supplies and equipment for the installation

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%.
