  • What We Do | Little Big Africa
    No project is forced on a community sometimes a school or a community is not willing or not ready at that time and LBA respects this It is vital for the sustainability and maintenace of a project that the community embraces the project as their own As a result of Phase One LBA is constantly identifying and grading potential communities throughout Manafwa based on their need and feasibility for the project This includes communities in desperate need of clean water schools without access to water and households struggling to cook more than one meal a day Phase Two Phase two is the Preparation Stage Using the baseline survey LBA approaches identified schools and communities to begin preparation for Phase 3 whether it is protecting a water source building a water tank in a primary school or training community members in energy efficient stoves A series of meetings take place with project stakeholders both men and women from the community including young people local leaders at district sub county parish and village level School Management Committees PTAs Headteachers Teachers parents and pupils and neighbours to name a few There is no set number of meetings we hold but it is rarely less than three to increase the community involvment knowledge understanding and participation in the project All LBA projects have a community contribution of locally available materials which is more often than not collected free of charge from around the community and all projects utilise local voluntary labour which is also mobilised through the sensitisation meetings Once everything is in place and contracts signed construction begins ZOOM click to view large file ZOOM click to view large file ZOOM click to view large file ZOOM click to view large file ZOOM click to view large file ZOOM click to view large file ZOOM click to view large file Phase Three This is the Implementing stage of the project It is where the actual construction takes place and by the end of this stage there is a protected water source water tank in a Primary School or fuel efficient stoves in place During this phase LBA supports the community to elect a local committee to maintain the project as well as provide training for the committees on how to maintain their project Committees set up an annual action plan to guide their work With the stoves committees are formed in individual villages of stove users to continue training and facilitating stove construction at household level and support stove owners in usage and post constructon maintenance Phase 3 also sees LBA providing extensive WASH awareness training for both communities and schools including on the Safe Water Chain Handwashing local Water Purification methods and maintenance of community water sources and water tanks Phase 3 is often supported by ACTION SITARU an international volunteering component where volunteers from around the world join us in Uganda to support Team LBA with the construction formation of committees and training Volunteers undergo a throrough 8 day training before
