Provision of clean drinking water for Kiboga, Mukono & Wakiso districts for poor communities in rural countryside , homesteads, schools, orphanages, people living with hiv/aids and elderly poorest population
1.0 WATER PROBLEMS & OPPROTUNITY – A GLOBAL BACK DROP
Of the more than six billion people in the World – according to the United Nations study (Source: UNDP Website, UN Department of Public Information, “Framework for Action on Water and Sanitation: prepared for World Summit on Sustainable Development), at least 1.2 billion do not have access to safe drinking water. More than 2.4 billion people do not have proper sanitation facilities.
(i) Dirty Water is deadly. Yet more than 2.2 million people, primarily in developing countries, die each year from diseases by polluted water and filthy sanitary conditions.
(ii) Everyday, diahorreal diseases cause some 6,000 deaths, mostly among children under 5 years.
(iii) More than 200 tines of human waste are dumped daily into the world’s rivers.
(iv) While water covers 70% of the earth’s surface, 97.5 is salt water.
(v) Although the remaining water is fresh water, three-quarters of that is frozen in ice caps.
(vi) By 2025, nearly two-thirds of the world’s population will live in water stressed regions.
(vii) In the next two decades, water use by humans will increase by 40% and 17% more water will be needed to feed increasing population in developing countries.
(viii) Over the last 30 years, the share of rural families with access to safe water rose from 10% to 60%.
(ix) Presently, 70% of all available fresh water is used for agriculture, but because of inefficient irrigation system, 60% of this water is lost.
2.0 UGANDA WATER INDUSTRY CONCERNS
Urban water system, like possibly exists in many urban centers of third world, is under tremendous pressure for meeting the explosive consumer demand. Consequently, many people, recognizing the poor utilities management and inadequacy in Uganda, have resorted to taking water that is unclean or getting their supply of water illegally because they have no choice in the matter. Of the Kampala City’s Low – income population, for instance, more than 70% of the water supply is got through informal ways, such as by paying the linemen and local officials to get connections, construct lines, maintain and operate systems for water supply. Uganda’s water supply system currently favour most in bulk consumers like industrial users than retail users. The proposed venture is to bring key stakeholders together each time and discuss essential issues to meet the vested interests of various groups. As a local
partner this will involve participatory decision-making at all phases of project development, implementation and monitoring.

BACKGROUND / INTRODUCTION
MUKONO WOMEN’S AIDS TASK FORCE (MWATF) is a women –based development organization based in maternity village in Mukono Town Council in Mukono District in central Uganda, its offices are at Mothers Union Buildings, Mukono Town Council, plot 19 Albert Cook Road.

MWATF stated as a voluntary group of few people with the same view to help the needy and educate the masses about the dangers of HIV/AIDS and environment protection. It originated when the outcry when Namulondo Sarah, the Founder , got inspired to impact the community lives , with the hearts to ministers to call upon all people to voluntarily come and sensitize HIV/AIDS and Gender issue programmes both in rural and urban areas of Mukono District. It first worked with religious leaders to distribute basics to orphans, PLWHAS single mothers and fathers, vulnerable children and women, and people with disability PWD.

ACHIEVEMENTS OF MWATF
.We have managed to sensitize communities about Clean water and sanitation Programmes, established Protected Water-Wells, cleaning water Sources, and advocated for and drilling of more than 20 Boreholes in Mukono District.
• We managed to train 80 women groups and 20 youth groups in group formation in Mukono District.
• We organized 12 training workshops and 15 seminars
• We distributed 200 blankets 200 mattresses to orphans and PLWHAS.
• We have managed to give counseling services to about 800 people and 300 were children since we started.
• We planted a 10 acre forest in Kyampisi Sub-county.
• We have constructed 300 saving Energy Stoves and trained 120 women how to make them in 14 sub-counties of Mukono.
• We managed to participate in different conferences and workshops with support from Global fund for Women (GFW)
CHALLENGES FACING MWATFs PROGRAMMES
• Stigmatization and discrimination of women by society.
• Death of members, which put stress on executives and members.
• Inadequate funding that leaves many vulnerable MWATF personnel to quit workforce for greener pastures
• Communication barriers and low literacy levels of the people which make them resistant to change new ideas.
• Lack of transport facilities.
• Lack of reliable economic base that should generate incomes to finance MWATFs community activities.
• Poverty among community members
• Corruption in government and Donor agencies in Uganda
• Weakness of Donor Communities whose Members come into the country while Neutral, once they are established they become Politically Controlled.
MWATF’s FUTURE PLANS
1. Construction of a Health Centre IV and Counseling Centre establishment in Wakiso District targeting, 5000 users monthly
2. Vocational Training cCnter construction
3. Garbage collection and recycling
IMPORTANCE OF HEALTH CENTRE
(a) MWATF is under taking to build this centre so as to take high degree of operation within its own facilities which allows efficient resources utilization with strict management then currently possible if using partner’s facilities often denied access to vital information on accountability and performances.
(b) Women have been known to be uneasy to respond to counseling being done at MWATF’s offices often crowded with people, thus no privacy; the cater will double as women’s social activities center whereby they meet other women, youth, PWD, PLWHAs share experiences, seeking guidance and counseling on important life issues and development opportunities and the MWATF centre will create jobs.
Three Phases. First Phase 2009 January -2010, Second Phase 2010 February -2011 February, Third Phase 2011 March-2015 and After.
Every participating community has Water Committee, stakeholders workshops to be conducted regularily, community/women leaders/water officers/health officials/youth and groups as CBOS/NGOs involved.
Proposal involves integration of different Water Delivery Mechanisms and Methods/Facilities in the Second and Third Phases including Own Water Kiosks Point Of Use sale of Water and related items, WATER SUPPLY TRUCKS/TANKERS,for mobile delivery and Sales, plus VALLEY DAMS/VALLEY TANKS Construction/RESERVIOURS, PACKED WATER FOR READY USE in POLYTHENE BAGS, PET BOTTLES/JARS, as well as IMPROVED SANITATION FACILITIES in Domestic and Institutional/Business Settings, Including Establishment of Own Water Pumping and Supply Facilities in Small Towns/Trading Centers at costs affordable in Partnership with interested Investors/Collaborators.REFORRESTATION OF DEPLETED WATERSHEDS in the CATCHMENT AREAS through Treeplanting, Nursery Beds Development, Tree Seedlings Production and Distribution , liaison with local and International Environmental organizations and Institutions, among others.Already MWATF has available their planted 10 Acres Forest for Community, in the crusade to save rampant tree felling in countryside along with other organizations,.RECYCLING SOLID WASTE including collection and disposal of notorious Polythene Bags in Uganda that has become a nuisance of polluting Uganda Wetland and Water Sources.Capacity Building of natives in the area is intended to raise awareness and equip them with required knowledges and approaches to address such challenges in their neighbourhood.
Population in the project areas are basically rural, poor, not so much educated in Matters of Health, Water and Sanitation, among others. The project will take this into account including empowering them in income generation and Gender Balance/equity.There is generally cultural resistance to change, MWATF undertakes to negotiate and sensitize the best of how these conflicting cultures can be used to projects benefits.
