Rehabilitation programme for water sources

2020 - 2022 • RTF Uganda Right The Future Uganda

Activities

In 2020, we started a major borehole rehabilitation programme, completely renovating non-functional boreholes across five districts in Uganda, bringing back clean water to almost 126,000 people across 123 projects. As of 1st October 2022, we have now rehabilitated 300 boreholes across 6 districts benefitting over 250,000 people.

Our team select communities to work with based on needs assessments. Communities and engineers then decide where to locate their water source and are required to contribute towards the work and ongoing maintenance. This engenders a sense of ownership and investment in ongoing maintenance.
Communities elect their own Water User Committee, and we train this group in water source management, bookkeeping, and conflict resolution, and we ensure they have a reserve fund to meet the costs of preventative maintenance. Through this we empower community members to manage local problems using local solutions.
When we work in a community we are committed to the long term with each source added to our rolling monitoring schedule.

Right The Future Uganda
Kampala
Uganda


Right the Future (RTF) Uganda is a legally registered NGO, working in Central Region, Western region, Eastern region and Northern Uganda with the mandate to extend services in the entire country. RTF Uganda aims at promoting health and social well-being of people in living in desolated settings whose access to health care information and services is compromised. RTF is a not for profit, non-partisan, inclusive and volunteer organization for improved Health and social development. It was established in January, 20th 2018 by a team of like-minded Health practitioners and social workers to offer meaningful support that enables women and girls access improved health services. [b]Vision:[/b] Establishing a healthy and non-discriminating society [b]Mission:[/b] Ensuring better life of people through provision of quality health care, gender equality and socio-economic transformation. [b]Goal:[/b] Equal participation of both male and female in desirable health care especially Sexual and Reproductive Health, fulfilling social and economic needs and a right to live equally and peacefully. [b]Core Values:[/b] [list] [*] Affordable Healthcare [*] Gender equality [*] Confidentiality [*] Transparency [/list] [b]Thematic Areas of Intervention: [/b] RTF has been implementing Health and development related programs under four large sectors by keeping an eye on the prevailing needs of grass-root population. These sectors are; [list] [*] Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights and Services [*] Advocacy for street-connected children and mothers [*] Education/ Vocational skills training [*] Livelihood [/list] [b]Priorities and Objectives:[/b] 1. Health Right the Future Uganda, through solid partnerships seeks to ensure the improvement and sustainability of the Sexual and Reproductive Health Care with the goal of ensuring effective, safe services for women and adolescent girls aimed at providing care in the most appropriate and efficient setting, and improving health outcomes. 2. Advocacy for Street connected teens and Mothers Advocacy is the process of gaining widespread support for a particular cause or policy. Street connected teen mothers are one of the worlds most marginalized populations. They are initially children who run to the streets, and then come to bear children on the same streets. They lack direct help because of their social category, face systemic discrimination, are at a much higher risk of being harmed and are denied a voice. Right the Future Uganda pays special attention in advocacy for street connected teen mothers 3. Education is needed for a productive society. Our population only continues to increase, and in turn, so do our needs. We need a strong and efficient workforce of educated people to provide us with the services we need for everyday life. Right the Future Uganda puts emphasis on elementary education because it gives a foundation for all other stages of education. 4. A livelihood is a means of making a living. It encompasses peoples capabilities, assets, income and activities required to secure the necessities of life. A livelihood is sustainable when it enables people to cope with and recover from shocks and stresses (such as natural disasters and economic or social upheavals) and enhance their well-being and that of future generations without undermining the natural environment or resource base.Right the Future Uganda recognizes the centrality of gainful livelihood within a household and the entire community. For the period of 4 years, RTF Uganda has partnered with different bodies like Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) and others in extending its programs in different slum areas of Kampala(Bwaiise, Kamwokya, Kisenyi and Kalerwe) and on street connected children and women to improve e their knowledge and accessibility to Sexual and Reproductive Health Care Rights and Services. Furthermore, RTF Uganda has also worked in partnership with Community Based Rehabilitation of Children with Disabilities (CBRCWD) a community based organization in Mityana District to improve the health and social well-being of people with disabilities. Furthermore, RTF Uganda recorded a success in the support of refugees in the Northern sub region of Uganda (Gulu and Amoro Districts). The extension of the organizations activities have been challenged by the COVID-19 pandemic yet its the same pandemic which made conditions worse for the street connected children and women together with people with disabilities and refuges to have good access to SRHR with ease. Therefore in presence of a blend of different stakeholders and financial support, people living in desolated settings like refugee camps, streets, slums, rehabilitation centers and rural communities can have access to Sexual Reproductive Health Rights and Services
