In summer 2014 Klaudija Guzauskiate and five toher students from University of Roehampton, will be flying to Uganda to do some life changing volunteering! Working with the local charity Little Big Africa the team will live and work in a rural Ugandan community. 

This trip consists of an exciting project split up into 4 schemes;

  • Construction of a 10,000 liter water tank in a primary school. This is essential for many of the schools out in Uganda as they do not have a nearby water source and the children of the school have to leave lessons to collect up to 400 liters of water each day for vital purposes such as cooking, washing their hands and cleaning the latrines.
  • Protection of the water source with a local community. This is to ensure that the unsafe water in Uganda can be made safe for the communities to use on a daily basis resulting in improved health for all.
  • Teaching Water Sanitation and Hygiene n in local schools and adult community. It is very important that there is an increased awareness in the communities regarding hygiene and sanitation in order to maximize the benefits of the water sanitation. Therefore, we will be teach the school children, teachers and community members to lead the initiative in improving sanitation within the community.
  • Training and construction and promotion of fuel-efficient stoves. Due to desertification and population increase, firewood is becoming very scarce. Women and children are walking up to 12km per day to collect firewood. These fuel-efficient stoves use a third of the firewood that Uganda’s typical three stone fires currently use. Ultimately reducing the pressure on Uganda’s forests and the time spent collecting firewood.

So please helps us and contribute by donating. EVERY donation, big or small counts!
