Water and Sanitation:
Access to clean and safe drinking water is a driving force for sustainable development and the eradication of poverty and hunger. Lango sub region has low water coverage. Surface water coverage in the region is not safe and sufficient for human consumption and dries up during dry season. Percentage of households that fetch unprotected and unsafe water is still high. Women and girls spend long time travelling long distances fetching water because of their gender role in the sub region. Provision of clean and safe drinking water by drilling boreholes, building bath shelters, toilets in resettlement areas, schools and in the communities hosting for refugees plus hygiene training are some of the interventions PUSH Uganda will engage on.
Child Care and Education Support Scheme
In Lango sub region, a number of orphan and vulnerable children are found. The problem of orphan and street children is acute due to death of HIV/AIDS affected persons, remarriages, absence of love and security in the families, family disputes, and exploited girls. PUSH Uganda envisage mainstreaming these children in nation building by providing care, support and protection in Orphan Children Home. PUSH Uganda will establishing child care or orphanage and sponsorship programme to provide comprehensive programme from preschool through primary, middle and high school. This will be integrated with vocational skills/entrepreneurship to equip the needy disadvantaged children with necessary knowledge and skills and looking for sponsorship and school twinning programs with international schools.
