烏干達是全世界GDP per Capita最低的區域之一,北部地區接壤南蘇丹,主要的居民都是農民,直到2000年都還受戰火波及,經濟發展遲緩,基礎建設也極度匱乏,沒有柏油路、沒有自來水,基礎教育環境及待改善。位於烏干達北部的佩拉村以及鄰近村落毫無基礎建設,也都缺乏永續性的水資源。2020年的東非水資源計畫將經營永續水資源,提升地方公衛條件,降低疾病發生機率,增近居民總體健康,為至少1000戶經濟弱勢居民提供永續的可用水,使1000名以上年輕女性及孩童免於在長途跋涉取水途中遭受性侵及人口販運的恐懼;另籌備社區發展中心,提供至少500名青年及學生資訊教育及職業訓練的機會。

 

Now 世台has identified a place of urgent need: East Africa. We plan to construct a borehole with a motorized distribution system that will make the water available for three communities, leading to improved health and sanitation, which are critical to combating diseases. This project will provide reliable access to a new water resource for at least 1,000 households. Most importantly, this project should be able to lower the risk of sexual violence along the water-fetching journey
