Project Description

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.  

Expected Outcomes
A decrease in the incidence of water-borne and hygiene-related illnesses. A tangible improvement in the knowledge and behaviour regarding sanitation and hygiene. Increased household income levels because of better health directly related to the project. Increased school attendance and improved grades. Decrease in the time each household spends meeting daily water needs.

Once Off
  1. Donations to approved Global Development Group Projects in partnership with Metamorphic over $2 are tax deductible.
  2. No non-development activities are undertaken using tax deductible funds.
  3. Our projects are typically designed in such a way that the activities can be implemented incrementally, regardless if a fundraising target is met or exceeded. However, if excess funds are still received, they may be applied to other approved project activities. [example: if the project was to raise funds for 3 wells, but only raises enough for 2 wells, then only 2 wells will be completed.]
  4. Reasonable effort will be taken to use the donated funds according to the donor’s preference. However, the project manager will make decisions in regard to implementation that are in the best interests of the project outcomes based on the stage of the project. (example: if a different water solution will help more people that option will be chosen at the time)
  5. Please Note: All of the reports that the donor/donors will receive will reflect the above and accurately account for the results.
