Providing Fresh Water Wells in Northern Uganda

Lifeline commenced its clean water program in 2006 with a focus on vulnerable communities in Uganda. Lifeline addresses both the “hardware” and “software” challenges to clean water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) through the combined efforts of drilling boreholes and teaching proper hygiene and sanitation practices. Lifeline’s efforts in the water space include the training of Water User Committees (WUCs), the creation of Community Health Clubs (CHCs) and the construction of latrines. The organization’s process involves full community engagement throughout every stage of the process, from siting of the water point, to the drilling of the borehole, to maintenance and user education.

Transforming Lives with fuel saving stoves

Lifeline’s fuel efficient stove (FES) and clean water programs have served to profoundly impact and transform the lives of thousands of individuals in Africa and Haiti. One of Lifeline’s paramount goals has been to create sustainable solutions to the problems caused by cooking on an open fire and lack of access to clean water in Northern Uganda. These problems include, among others, deforestation, poverty, injuries, illness and death.

Beyond health and environmental impacts, Lifeline’s FES and clean water programs also provide invaluable time saving benefits. The time saved collecting fuel and water may be utilized for a host of other activities, including education, household chores and even small business endeavors. With one million deaths per year due to cooking on an open fire and one billion people lacking access to clean water, Lifeline’s programs are designed to address two of the very most urgent needs of impoverished communities in the developing world.
