This project is aimed at rural people in Uganda who don’t have access to clean, safe drinking water. As a result of poor water quality and poor hygiene practices, many people in Uganda experience poor health, and the infant morbidity rate is alarming, with diarrhoea still the biggest killer of children under five years of age. Added to this, poor water quality and poor hygiene result in a non-productive society with absenteeism high among workers and students.
This project addresses these issues and empowers the recipients to take charge of their life, health and education and see continual improvement on a scalable level.
The projected impact is that 3890 people have access to clean, safe drinking water for the first time in their lives for $16.77 AUD per person. We estimate that 238,368 man-hours can be saved per annum based on one person per family fetching water three times per week). Those man-hours saved will be reinvested into productive activities such as education and creating income. Fourthly we would expect measurable improvement in health in these communities resulting in lives saved and more productive locals who will benefit from fewer sick days.
The majority of the people that will be helped are a part of the poorest in Uganda, and this district is one of many where people still live on less than $2 per day.
Gifts to approved Metamorphic Projects over $2 are tax deductible.
No non-development activities are undertaken using tax-deductible gifts.
Our projects are typically designed in such a way that the activities can be implemented incrementally, regardless of whether a fundraising target is met or exceeded (e.g. if a project includes 3 wells but only enough funds are raised for 2 wells, then only 2 wells will be completed). In the case where excess funds are received they may be applied to other similar projects (e.g. any funds in excess of what is required for 3 wells but may be applied to a school latrine project in a different region).
All donations (gifts) and contributions to Metamorphic are made unconditionally however we note your preferred beneficiary as indicated by your allocation. The project manager may alter the allocation in the best interest of project outcomes (e.g. if a different solution will help more people, that option will be chosen).
Please note: All reports will reflect the above and accurately account for the results
