Sanitation in Slum Communities

KASENYI SLUM IN BANDA, KAMPALA

absent Toilets


Kasenyi slum like all the rest, has a very huge population of people, but uses only one public toilet. Which is not logically used by all the people.

“Poor Sanitation, and children in slum communities.”

Water and sanitation are essential for life and health, but they are also essential for dignity, empowerment and prosperity. Water and sanitation are human rights, fundamental to every child and adult. But in Uganda, poor sanitation and hygiene, as well as unequal access to safe drinking water, make thousands of children very sick and at risk of death.
According to UNICEF Behaviour change is the key to increasing the practice of hand washing with soap and ending open defecation. The change can be accomplished through motivation, information and education. Which AHI-Uganda has put emphasis on through the Behavior Change Campaign.
Clean water must be readily available for people to improve their hygiene habits, as must soap. And girls must have privacy and dignity when using sanitation facilities.

the Drainage system


Since most people living in slums are poor people starting life in the urban areas, they construct unplanned numerous temporary  structures for survival. When it rains it floods heavily in and around the homes. Though government has plans for this.  It is overwhelmed with large numbers and large budgets.

As we work on  washing hands with soap and water, we should also support in the provision of clean water supply- and educate the communities on issues of good sanitation. 

the real picture


Just like Kasenyi, Kisenyi, Kivulu, and Katanga in Kampala Uganda; Bwaise faces the same  sanitation challenges.  

Our Approach

AHI-Uganda’s approach involves partnership with other organisations and service providers in line with the cause, Behavior Change Campaigns in such Communities, Orphans and Vulnerable Children program focusing on slums, the mercy bag program focusing on beneficiaries living in slum communities, and skilling youths and women from such communities with the aim of improving their lifestyle, so that they can leave that environment in a while.
