A SNAPSHOT OF OUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS:

IN A COUNTRY LITTERED WITH BROKEN WATER SYSTEMS, WE VALUE OUR OPERATIONAL, SAFE WATER PROJECTS.

    • Built 6 onsite rainwater collection systems (rainwater harvested from the school roof is collected in a 40,000L water tank) and repaired/constructed 7 10,000L rainwater tanks.

    • Worked closely with the Ugandan Dept. of Education on all aspects of our partnerships with Ugandan public schools including: health and sanitation, educational materials, teacher support and training, community and parent involvement, and sustainable infrastructure development.

  • Provided each partner school with enough farm tools for an entire class to work. With this boost, all partner schools grow enough food for students and teachers to eat lunch.

  • Engaged parents and families to rally around their schools to support education (often first girls’ education) and develop strategic plans for their schools.

  • Provided more than 3,175 reusable sanitary pads kits to more than 550 female students over seven consecutive years (and counting!) to help them stay in school with confidence during their periods. Girls in our work area cannot afford to purchase disposable sanitary pads and may stay home during menstruation or try to manage using old rags or banana leaves.
