We have brought together photographs showing what The Kisoboka Trust has done in Uganda and Kenya. There are pictures of our Rain water Harvesting projects, our work on VIP toilets and school wash rooms, rehabilitation of water pumps and the beginnings of our Community Health project. A separate portfolio shows just a few happy photographs and videos of general celebrations.
We will add to these and write explanatory text as the pictures become available and we have time.
How we are helping to Change Lives
A few other ways to help
Apart from water, sanitation and health we have, thanks to our donors responded to requests for help in other ways.
Time to celebrate
We have included a bit of music and dancing.
Health in the Community
This baby arrived safely. Any complications would have meant a 7kilometre ride on back of a motor bike
Sanitation and washing
These boys are happy with the new latrine, but so many schools and communities also need them.
We had an Email from the School Director, quoted verbatim"The situation for the toilet will make life very hard if it gets full before we can somebody helps us build a new one. The only available pit toilet is temporary, and it was meant for use for one year. The toilet on site build is only 12 feet deep, due to the soil texture of the area , we could not dig deeper that that. Thus, things nay prove very hard, it these toilets get full, when we have not got one to help us putting in place another one.?"We managed to respond to this by providing funding for construction of two emptiable VIP latrines, one for boys, one for girls. This has helped the school through recent years but they have requested support for two more due to the increased numbers of pupils.
Repair of pumps amd Water sources
Over the whole of Sub Saharan Africa there are thousands of broken water pumps and natural springs which are contaminated by human and animal faeces. Thanks to support of other charities and donors we have been able to work with local partners to repair pumps and protect springs
Rain Water Harvesting
Families and communities frequently have to collect water from swamps and unprotected springs. Women and young children especially spend time on collecting water which is often contaminated and a source of disease. Kisoboka have been able to support rain water harvesting systems at schools in Uganda and Kenya.. This means that the students have access to clean water at the school.
