Descripción del proyecto y el trabajo a realizar

The Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) entails the provision of safe water for drinking and other domestic use, the safe disposal of waste (toilet and other waste) and health promotion activities to encourage protective healthy behavioral practices amongst the population. Nearly 90 percent of Uganda's 37 million people live in small towns and rural areas, and roughly two thirds of them lack access to safe water.

More Water Facts:
• Over half the population in Uganda lacks a safe place to go to the toilet.
• 8.8 million People in Uganda don't have access to safe water. This is almost a quarter of the population.
• Over 22 million people don't have access to adequate sanitation in Uganda, almost two thirds of the population.
• Over 12,000 children die every year from diarrhea caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation in Uganda.

Pit latrine coverage in Uganda is low, 47%. A study done by UNICEF(1993) showed that pit latrine coverage was 20% and those families who have the pit latrines but do not using them, while others have them but in poor hygienic conditions, and yet others do not have them at all. As a result of this, there is a high incidence of diseases caused by poor sanitary conditions especially worm infestation and diarrhea diseases. This is where you come in!

Volunteers taking on this component work in manual labor such as digging the water wells, constructing of Spring Water Well and digging of trenches alongside skilled and unskilled local builders to help with the construction work. Volunteers can also help in the Construction and renovation of Boreholes and water wells and Provide Technical Advice and skills to the WASH team in water.
