There are several ways - all easy!

1. Go to the map and click on any drop to see info about the project. When you click on it, you can see a summary and then click on the link to get to the project.

2. Before you login, on the PWX home page, you can click on "Projects" near the bottom on the right column in "Our Work" box.

3. After you login as a member, on the dashboard, in the right column there are "Quick Links: Project" where you can choose All Projects or All Active Projects or ...

4. Search - type any term you want and you will find projects whose descriptions include that word.

Enjoy, and let me know if you have any more issues.

Water project plans

By Blue Planet Network Posted on Fri 29 Aug 2008, about 13 years ago

Dear Mathilda and Solome,

We look forward to welcoming you into PWX.

Your org has a rich history of projects.

I would like to know what you learned at the AWWC conf that was new.
How do you plan to structure water projects in the future?

Seeing your model of education and providing grants, how do you follow up to ensure that the project is working long-term?

Thanks and regards,
Rajesh

Water project plans

By UCOBAC Posted on Wed 01 Oct 2008, almost 13 years ago

Dear Rajesh,

Thanks for your questions.

Sorry for late reply. We have been having problems with log in.

We at UBOBAC are very eager to join PWX.
At the AWWC we learnt how to harvest waster using an iron sheet raised on four wooden ples. We alsolearnt how to harvest water using hardcore, aggregate, sand and cement to make a smooth slanting surface built in an open place free from falling leaves from trees. We also lernt how to put a polythese sheet accross a grassroofed house to tap rain water. These three technologies interested us verymuch because they are cheap and easy to teach to our communities. The one technologies of building a ferro-cement tank was quite fascinating but it is difficult to build and expensive for our vulnerable communities!!

The process of structuring water projects in the future in our communities has already started. We are busy sensitising staff especiually field staff to incorporate rain water harvesting technologies among topics for training to our beneficiaries during training sessions in all projects.

The District and local leaders in some districts have already been sensitised and communities awaiting funding for the training on the above technologies.
We also plan to design and produce awareness messages, in form of posters, T-shirts, hats, badges on the importance of clean, safe water!! We shall lobby district and local leaders to put in place by-laws to safe guard and protect the already existing water sources in the communities. We are in process of fundraising for bigger water projects as it all known that "WAter Is Life!"

On the issue of follow up, UCOBAC has district structures called "District Affiliate committees (DAC) whose main role is to carry on day-to-day supervision and monitoring of UCOBAC projects to make sure they work long term.UCOBAC also works closely with district and local leaders who involved in the project right from the start and so own the project for sustainability purposes.

UCOBAC Programme staff, NEC members and Focal Point Person visit the project regularly to make sure everything is going on as planned.

Thanks

How many groups of women do you work with?

By A Single Drop Posted on Wed 10 Sep 2008, about 13 years ago

Hi Mathilda and Solome

Thanks so much for submitting your profile!

I just wanted to know a little more about your women's groups. Are they already existing or do you help create OR both? Can you tell me how the outreach works; how you choose who you work with, how much monitoring and follow-up you do with them?

Where do you get most of your funding? International, local, membership fees?

I look forward to finding out more about your org!

By UCOBAC Posted on Wed 01 Oct 2008, almost 13 years ago

Dear Gemma,

Sorry to have taken so long to answer your question. We have been having problems with log in.

Greetings from UCOBAC!! The UCOBAC family members who attended the AWWC at Nairobi feel that the rain water catchment technologies that we leant were very appropriate for the poor communities which UCOBAC serves. The project that UCOBAC has implemented before which involved protecting shallow water wells and springs was good but can only be done with big funding which at times is very difficult to come by. Thank you so much.

UCOBAC works with about 200 women groups in the area of Health (where the water project falls), Governance and Human Rights, Orphans and vulnerable Children (OVC) and Capacity Building of Community Based Organisations (CBOs).

90% of the women groupsas self help groups already in existence with their own objectives by the time UCOBAC starts with them. This is so because in Uganda, women tend to come together to support eachother to find solutions to challenges they face in their day-to-day lives. Most notable is fighting poverty, caring for the ever growing number of children and caring for those suffering from HIV and AIDS in the recent years.

However, in situations where UCOBAC identifies a big problem and there are no signs of women coming together to find solutions, it may come in to help them form themselves into groups called Solidarity Groups (SG).

In every district where UCOBAC works, CBOs working on issues of women and children and are interested in working with UCOBAC come together and form a District Affiliate Committee (DAC). This is a team responsible for the day-to-day running of the activities of UCOBAC in the district.After every three years the representatives of the all the DAC meet to form the National Assembly from which the UCOBA National Executive Committee (NEC) is elected. In addition to this structure, for every project implemented, aCommunity's Own Resource persons (CORPs) are elected from among the beneficiaries. These are volunteers and leaders and do the day supervision and montitoring of the groups under them. The Programme Officers visit the projects regularly to support the volunteers.

UCOBAC gets most of its funding from international donors. UCOBAC also does fundraising locally.

Sisterhood is the foundation of every success!!
