Story

Welcome to my fundraising page.

I'm off walking again, this time with my Dad. We're doing 20 miles over the Quantock hills along with other Watsan fundraisers. This is Dad's 5th walk for Watsan and I thought it was about time I joined him.

Watsan stands for Water, Sanitation and Hygiene education in rural S.W. Uganda. Money raised from this walk will go towards water and sanitation improvements at the school in Kihihi Hill.
Here the ratio of latrines is completely inadequate at 1:49 for boys and 1:64 for girls and for much of the year, water has to be carried from 1km away.

Please help me raise funds for this worthwhile cause.

Donating with give.net is really easy and completely secure. If you are a UK taxpayer, please confirm that you would like to reclaim Gift Aid on your donation. This will add 25p to every £1 you give. Thanks for visiting!



Watsan Uganda UK Support

The charity's objectives are the provision of safe, clean drinking water, sanitation and hygiene education to the rural communities of south-west Uganda, in the dioceses of North Kigezi and Kinkiizi. The charity operates under the umbrella of the church of Uganda in those dioceses with the support of both bishops. The work shows God's love to all people in a practical way.

Our current project is KIHIHI HILL RAINWATER HARVESTING AND SANITATION IMPROVEMENTS.

The existing water sources at Kihihi Hill are extremely unsatisfactory and existing sanitation buildings are quite inadequate. The project will be centred on the large high school (1000+ pupils), the associated nursery school and the church community, where a total of 4 x 30cu.m. rainwater harvesting tanks will be built.

New latrines for both pupils and staff will be constructed at the school and at the church, plus bathing shelters for the girls.

We need to raise over £25,000 to complete the project. Please support this vital work.
