CURRENT PROJECTS - UGANDA
SPRING WELL CONSTRUCTION
In 2015, Educaring Africa and ASTCF volunteers funded the construction of a new spring-well in the Kahangi Village. The project was a collaboration between volunteers, stakeholders and the entire community. Educaring Africa and ASTCF are seeking to fund the construction of a number of other spring wells in the local community.
PIT LATRINE CONSTRUCTION
Educaring Africa has recently funded the construction of a new pit latrine block for a local primary and nursery school and church. Many pit latrines in the community are old, unhygienic and unsafe and Educaring Africa and ASTCF are seeking to construct and replace a number of other latrines in the local area.
STABILISED SOIL BRICK MAKING
As part of ASTCF's youth empowerment program, Educaring Africa has recently funded a stabilised soil brick making machine for local youth to produce free bricks for the local community. Not only are these bricks sun-dried and environmentally friendly, they will be used to fund a number of construction projects in the local community. Find out more about how it works below.
ASTCF with support from Educaring Africa has established three women's empowerment groups in the Kahangi Village. These groups foster arts and crafts and a savings and lendings program that ultimately teaches women business management skills through micro-finance. Educaring Africa is further supporting these groups by aiming to expose their products to new markets outside Uganda.
TREE 4 LIFE
Educaring Africa has previously funded and provided large amounts of fruit trees to local schools in the region. This project aims to educate local students about the importance of environmental conservation, farming and nutrition. A simple project that is so effective in mitigating climate change and providing food for local students.
