Construction of pit latrines for foster homes in Uganda

Requested by

Herbert Childrens Haven

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

The most vulnerable and marginalized group in our community are the children who have been orphaned or suffering the effects and impact of poverty.

It is evident therefore that these orphans and other vulnerable children’s social problem is one of the biggest challenges facing many families in Uganda.

Therefore, due to low resource base leading to poverty, they are denied the enjoyment of basic human rights, security, care, support and well being.

HECH has stepped in as a ‘foster home’ for these children.

To make all children’s rights a reality ‘not just writing them in books’

To help children who would not have access to basic human rights, give them shelter, medication and education up to the university level.

What is your project and how will it help?

HECH has successfully placed the 120 fostered children under its care to 40 foster homes. However these homes lack proper sanitation and hygiene facilities. HECH is to help these families by constructing pit latrines for every home.

Construction of pit latrines will improve hygiene conditions, reduce the risk of water borne diseases and promote better enrollment and attendance rates.

Please see attachment for further details.

How can other people partner with you on your project?

Under this project we are looking for partners who can give us financial resources to make this project a success.

Please detail the resources that you need.

There are 40 foster homes therefore 40 pit latrines to be constructed

40 pit latrines x 2,553,000 UGX = 102,120,000 UGX

Construction of one pit latrine is about US$ 1,000
Project total is about US$ 40,000

Please see attachment for detailed budget.
