A traveling hands-on exhibit that models problems and solutions about sanitation issues such as hand washing, managing pet waste and water storage could be used to reach children, youth and by extension women. Imagine for example a “hand” to which “germs” are attached. Placing the hand under water and soaped (could be simulated) so the germs wash off makes for an engaging and illustrative example of why one should wash their hands.
Increasing access to rural community members by strengthening the Capacity of Civil Society Organisations, Local Private Enterprises and Community Members in Domestic Roof Water Harvesting and management in Uganda
This solution stems from a successful intervention by NETWAS-Uganda with support from African Water Facility where we strengthened capacities of 3 local NGOs from 3 District Local governments, Private enterprises and the beneficiary community during the implementation of Roof Catchment Rainwater harvesting and Management project. This solution ensured that rural people gain access to low cost safe water and provided them with learning on management of water throughout the dry season.
