HEre are some of the projects in East Africa that CanAssist is working on - or plans to start soon. Your donation can help us complete this work.
In the past we have assisted the Olimai Medical clinic in Uganda. This essential rural community clinic services a large number of individuals for a wide variety of issues. They are currently in need of a 4-room Residence for staff.
CanAssist has funded the repair of many borehole wells in the Mukono region of Uganda. These outdated community boreholes were in much need of repair as each well services 500-1200 people. Access to clean water is a basic human need which CanAssist is happy to support.
Madero Sunrise Secondary School in the Siaya District of Kenya is in need of a new latrine, like the one below, for its teaching staff. Improved sanitation leads to improved health outcomes.
The Katembe Primary School in the Southwest corner of Uganda is in need of two new classrooms to support the hard working students who attend. Currently students are learning in wooden structures which offer little protection from the elements.
We are presently seeking funding for several new latrines. We also need funds for additional borehole wells and water catchment projects throughout East Africa, additional classrooms at a number of school sites, and funds to purchase fuel efficient wood burning stoves for school kitchens. We continue to buy books, furnishings, computers and supplies for several schools throughout the district. All of these projects need your support. Click on the link to donate now!
St. Mathew Nursery and Primary School: This small rural school in the Bwindi region of Uganda has applied for funding to construct 8 staff cottages on the school property. This would allow teachers to live on site. Money from rent could be used to buy food and supplies for the school. The cost of this project is 24,905,000 Ush or approximately $9100.
