    no clean water and as always we promised to visit and survey the need for and availability of water At LBA once we have identified and verified a potential spring for protection where a community has a real need for clean water we assess it s priority and it is added to our to do list Two years later LBA was able to tick off from our to do list the spring in Rehema s village and now Rehema s family not only drink clean water but they cook with clean water wash with clean water and wash up with clean water And it only takes Rehema and her children 10 minutes to walk each way to the newly protected water source It is stories like Rehema s that have inspired us to mark LBA s ten year birthday with our 10 for 10 campaign We want to build ten water tanks and protect ten water sources for our tenth birthday And we are looking for 20 teams to get behind us with this campaign ten for the tanks and ten for the water sources It costs LBA 650 to protect a water source and 880 to build and paint a water tank Do you or a family member teach in a school A water tank would be less than 1 per pupil Think you could organise that Do your employers make a donation to charity each year Get involved and suggest they build their very own tank Think you could talk to them Tell your family and friends to ask their employers too Are you a placement group of ex LBA volunteers A water source would be 108 each Even less if you got your whole LBA year group involved Think you could fundraise that Prompt your university course

    77 Water Tanks Many schools do not have a nearby water source This means children most especially girls are forced to leave their lessons to collect up to 400 litres of water for the school Not only are girls missing out on their education but they are also at risk from sexual abuse when they leave the school premises 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 A 10 000 litre water tank constructed on site using environmentally friendly and cost effective soil compressed bricks collects enough water to serve the school community LBA also provides guttering for rain water harvesting to channel the rain water from the classroom roofs into the tank The costs of the tank are about half that of a plastic tank plus the local community get involved with the construction helping build a sense of pride and ownership Creating a water supply at the school provides access to water and helps protect children and teachers from potentially life threatening diseases It protects girls from abuse and helps keep girls in school so they

    hike with 20kgs to carry on their head For the lucky ones this will at least be clean water though for 44 of Ugandans the water they collect is unsafe for human consumption LBA has constructed 68 protected water sources providing whole communities with clean safe drinking water Without a protected water source many families have no choice but to collect their water from what is nothing more than a muddy puddle They often have no choice but to stand in the puddle to reach the water They have no choice to share the puddle with cows frogs insects algae and lava If the puddle is shallow they have no choice but to scoop the water with a small cup often over 60 times to fill their jerrycan This however is easy to change through providing families communities with a clean safe alternative A protected water source provides clean safe drinking water for a whole village Many of our sources serve 3 4 or 5 villages where no other protected source is available 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 When we protect a water source we trap natural water underground before it has surfaced or become contaminated and channel it through a pipe where the clean water can easily be collected The water is clean the water is safe it is plentiful easily collectible and it is available all year round A protected water source can greatly improve the health of a community reducing water borne and water related diseases Less illness means less time spent absent from school or work less valuable money spent on medicines a reduction in child mortality and of course improvement
