    GWWI Moyo is still mobilizing resources and getting community support to build 4 toilets in a school (2 for boys and 2 for girls) as a requirement for their participation in the GWWI training program.

    The Sanitation training is a separate project and is not funded by the BPN grant. However, we are including it because it is relevant to the women's growth as WASH entrepreneurs and also accounts for their other activities outside of the BPN grant.

    Comfort will call to remind them of their prep list:

    Women's prep
    - have all materials on site -
    - plan labor and masons on site
    - dig pit
    - make slab - 1 week prior to GWWI training team arriving

    - ask if they will build composting or VIP
    - remind them of what they have to do before you come
    - help design last day - 2 or 3 events of soapmaking
    - ask if they need materials from Kampala
    - areas with public health officials - they can ask them to help identify good at sites - use district officer, role of them to inform them of any danger -
    - comfort write emails to women about who they should talk to - which officer and which official to speak to.

    Marindi Coop/GWWI Moyo - Women and Water Entrepreneurship in Uganda

    Status: In-progress

    Operating Status:

    Between the time this proposal was submitted and the issuance of the grant, Marindi Cooperative opened a new entity called the Global Women's Water Initiative Moyo Branch. Marindi Coop realized the importance of the Women and Water Entrepreneurship when the 2 women, Angella Tassas and Martha Adong returned from the GWWI training with useful knowledge and technologies to address their local water issues. With full support from the cooperative and local leaders, 30 women came together to form GWWI Moyo with the sole intention of building water and sanitation solutions to their communities to improve community health and empower women.

    They received their first grant from GWWI/BPN in January 2013.

Maridini Cooperative - now known as the Global Women's Water Initiative, MOYO Branch - will build 8 tanks and 10 biosand filters.

Impact

Implementer: KWDT, MCS and GWWI

Implementing org #1 - KWDT, named the Best Performing WASH NGO in Uganda and the 2011 3rd Kyoto World Water Grand Prize at the World Water Forum in Marseilles. KWDTs unique model in working with women's circles and training the local women to build each other's ferro cement tank is replicable and sustainable. The KWDT women's circles raise money through "Merry-Go-Rounds", where members contribute a fixed amount per month and one woman will receive the full month's contribution to invest in a RWH system. KWDT members Rose and Mastula are GWWI trainees and will be implementing the BSF project.

Implementing org #2 - MCS is Marindi Co-operative Society - now known as Global Women's Water Initiative Moyo (GWWIM) is an organised group composed of women trained in WASH. The group’s main activity is carrying out small scale credit and savings services to its members. MCS members Angella and Martha are GWWI trainees and will be implementing the RWH projects. They are both retired nurses and health workers and continue to offer health education, gardening, poultry farming, tree nursery management and other vocational training.

Training org - GWWI trains women in Sub-Saharan Africa to to build simple water and sanitation technologies so they can become economically self-reliant and improve their communities' health. GWWI provides women with tools to educate their community about hygiene and water protection as well as technical skills to build rainwater harvesting tanks, water treatment technologies and toilets. With this training, participants have the potential to start micro-businesses. GWWI Director Gemma Bulos is a multi-award winning social entrepreneur integrating social entrepreneurship into the WASH sector in the Philippines via A Single Drop for Safe Water, an organization she founded in 2006.
