Touch Africa Now has also had the chance to participate in the sanitation area, by building clean toilets, in partnership with UNICEF, DUCF, and private donors. These toilets have mainly served the students and faculty at each of our schools: in Nyakagando, Wakiso, Kampala, Yumbe, Arua, and in two centers in Rhino Refugee Camp.


We also move around spraying areas prone to insects and diseases (fumigation)

Touch Africa Now contributes to the disadvantaged who do not have access to water and sanitation in a number of ways. 

We have presence in four districts located in northern Uganda. These are Yumbe, Kiryandongo, Arua and Wakiso


We continue to service over 2000 people everyday with clean life giving water. Hence, water related diseases where we have presence have reduced by 40% already. We could not have done so much without donors like you, MedHope, R3ACH and Dove Uganda Children's Fund (DUCF)


Below, we summarise what we do in this regard.

 By partnering with Rotary International and DOVE Uganda Children’s Fund (DUCF) , we’ve been able to install boreholes in several communities near our schools: three in Kiryadongo, two in Yumbe, and one in Arua. These boreholes serve thousands of families, by providing them with consistent clean water, pumped from deep underground. They ensure that water is available even in dry seasons and that people don’t have to walk many miles to find a water source.


A borehole is a pipe that provides fresh water from underground. Drilling a borehole is an expensive fit but worthwhile because the underground water is quite safe and free from water borne diseases. On the right we show two photos: one during the process of digging and installing the borehole, and the second one of children enjoying the water from a borehole.


By partnering with donors like R3ACH Global, we’ve been able to supply hundreds of Tiva Water filters to families and offices in the West Nile Region- Arua, Yumbe, and Rhino Camp - as well to sponsored students and their families in various regions throughout the country. These filters, along with the training in how to use them properly, have helped recipients save on the cost of boiling water and have drastically reduced the water-borne diseases in the communities they have served.

Hygiene

Post it, tweet it, share it. The more people you tell, the more help we can receive.


Concerning hygiene, Touch Africa Now has had the privilege to provide women and adolescent girls with Female Hygiene Kits (FHK) to hygienically manage their menstrual cycles. By partnering with R3ACH Global, we’ve been able to provide Female Hygiene Kits (FHKs) to hundreds of women in Rhino Refugee Camp. These kits contain items like clean underwear, washcloths, soap and a bucket for washing, and disposable sanitary pads, which last. Through DUCF, Touch Africa Now has provided re-usable sanitary pads to adolescent girl sponsored students. Since menstruation is a huge factor in school dropout rates, supplies like these are a very important part of education for girls.
