Construct sanitary facilities for elderly in Uganda

Requested by

Namugongo Youth and Women Development Association (YWDAN)

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

Old people in the Kimwanyi ward of Kira in Ugandan do not have proper sanitary facilities. These people do not have proper pit latrines and this has led to their families being invaded by disease.

Children fall sick because of poor sanitation and hygiene. They need training in sanitation as well as better facilities.

The families we are interested in are families who have lost their children who could have cared for them, and thus are now left to care for their grandchildren.

We want to provide facilities and training for them.

What is your project and how will it help?

Our project seeks to improve the sanitary conditions of older people who look after families in Kimwany Ward, Kira Town, Waakiso District.

The following are the objectives of the project.

- To construct twenty (20) good pit latrines for the families
- To train the 20 families in sanitation skills
- To support the 20 families with care and counselling services

This will be done in three villages of Kimwanyi, Kiwologoma, and Kitukutwe where the beneficiaries will be selected.

How can other people partner with you on your project?

We are seeking for partners who could help us to acquire the materials for pit latrine construction and funds for purchasing materials. We also need funds for other expenses, and help with technical skills.

Please detail the resources that you need.

Resources that are required include the following:

Constructional materials like bricks, cement, sand, iron sheets, steel bars, doors, pipes, stones estimated at US$ 3000; Sanitation facilities like small jerry cans, soap, socks, sticks estimated at US$1000 and labour estimated at US$ 3000; all totaling to US$ 7000.
