LWD’s technology and methodological approach are low cost and suitable to the local cultural, financial, and ecological conditions. Along with the water, sanitation and hygiene (WaSH) education, WatSan training and percussion drilling method, local people are empowered to plan, construct and administer their own projects to maximize the communities benefit.
By resourcing communities at a “grass root” level, LWD will empower local people in these pressing issues. While drilling a well for a community may help in the short term, we believe that training individuals, who are then able to drill or dig their own wells and manage new community assets, accomplish more.
You can help more people to help themselves to a healthier future by supporting the launch of the 2009 water project: “Build 100 Wells - Train 100 People”. Not only will 100 Wells be built, but 100 people will be trained in the process to build these wells and learn about the importance of clean water and good sanitation practices.
ISAA’s goals in conjunction with LWD for the next two years are the delivery and training of a new bore hole drill, training in concrete well construction for lining of hard dug wells, purchase of support vehicles that will help to generate income for further advancement and progress of the children’s and youth development work.
Using proven approaches and available technologies, we can make huge progress towards the MDG safe water and sanitation target by 2015.
ISAA seeks to create change by building capacity in individuals and in the broader communities with which we partner with. Be part of the challenge to help make water supply and sanitation a reality for all.
I hope that as we seek to improve water and sanitation amongst the poorest people groups in Uganda, you may also be inspired to act with us to bring dignity and change. Contact us today!
