Latrine Coverage

Latrine Coverage Slums in Kampala have very poor latrine coverage, a condition that increases the prevalence of cholera, dysentery, worms, and many other diarrhea diseases. We conduct ‘Sanitation Pushes’, innovative and inclusive campaigns to increase latrine coverage and sanitation measures in our villages.  WOOSH plans to solve this chall

Menstrual Hygiene Management

Menstrual hygiene management (MHM) is a major health issue affecting women and girls of reproductive age worldwide. Fifty-two per cent of the female population is of reproductive age at any given time. The transition into reproductive age for some girls is often met with fear and anxiety due to a lack of knowledge about menstruation and a lack of resources about the changes that are occurring in their bodies. School-aged girls in marginalized communities face the largest barriers to MHM, as many schools do not have the necessary facilities, supplies, knowledge, and understanding to appropriately support girls during menstruation. This negatively impacts their education and ability to stay in school. Furthermore, schools often have inadequate water and sanitation available, making menstrual hygiene almost impossible to maintain, causing stress and embarrassment for female students. Also, communities often hold local cultural beliefs or taboos related to menstruation that can threaten a girl’s physical and/or emotional well-being.

Equality

WOOSH (Water Out of Safe Holder) takes a life cycle approach to sanitation and hygiene programming. All humans experience different phases in their own life cycle, from infancy, through puberty, parenthood, illness and old age. The sanitation and hygiene needs for everyone, at all times, need to be considered if programmes and policies

Sanitation and Hygiene

Millions lack menstrual hygiene and vital hand washing facilities. Diarrheal disease, largely caused by poor water, sanitation and hygiene, is a leading cause of malnutrition, stunting and preventable child mortality, claiming around 561,000 lives of children under five annually. Inadequate facilities also affect education and economic producti

Throughout our WASH programs, WOOSH will continue facilitating safe water outreaches especially in the most vulnerable settings.

WASH Education in Communities

We habitually educate our village communities about the importance of household hygiene, personal hygiene, and sanitation through outreaches. We also have partnerships with local schools, encouraging children to adopt personal habits of hygiene, and to help their schools and their families adopt small sanitation measures like having ‘tippy-taps’ outside of latrines. Tippy taps are locally-constructed hand washing stations that make it easy for people to follow good hygiene practices. To teach about the importance of safe water and good sanitation, we hold village outreaches about the importance of gathering water from clean water sources, and importance of using ceramic filtration over boiling – water intended for consumption. We also educate villagers about the nature and danger of water-borne diseases contracted by drinking contaminated water. At times we bring in local community based organizations (CBOs) to do educational performances or outreaches about safe water, similar to the CBO performances given on HIV/AIDs or malaria.

Water Crisis

The lack of safe water, functional toilets, and handwashing facilities in healthcare settings poses significant health risks to patients, healthcare workers and nearby communities. The ongoing global problem of health facility-acquired infections (HAI) has highlighted the consequences of the lack of water and sanitation facilities and practice of k
