A Participatory Action Research about tackling a contaminated water and sanitation problem with the community in Wakiso district, Bukijje and Ndikuttamadda zone, Kampala, Uganda.
Through PAR, five new volunteer leaders were appointed by the community to guide the -with community members and leaders- co-created plan to tackle water contamination in the area. Activities included cleaning the water well, constructing a new funnel and education and awareness raising activities regarding cleanliness and health. See the report of this Challenge for more information.
In 2022 the water well has been further improved, resulting in clean, pure water for the community. Participatory Action Researcher Steve Brown says about this:
“The communities’ reaction is very positive, since they are now having pure and clean water for their domestic purposes. They appreciated the work done together with the fundraisers. Thank you said by the community members!”
Health outcomes and further impact have not been measured yet.
