WAter and sanitation
In Northern Uganda, many families not only lack access to clean and safe drinking water but are also in need of basic sanitation facilities including latrines. The problem of poor latrine coverage and lack of access to adequate clean and safe drinking water has left many children susceptible to water borne diseases like diarrhea, typhoid, dysentery and cholera among others.
At A River Blue, our water and sanitation focus is to;
- Promote the supply of clean and safe drinking water for rural households
- Help vulnerable households gain access to basic sanitation facilities, such as latrines, garbage pits, drying racks etc.
- Equip rural schools with sanitation and hand-washing facilities.
In addition to these goals, A River Blue seeks partnerships to provide access to water and appropriate technology for smallholder farmers for family livestock and agricultural purposes
