International Lifeline Fund – Uganda / USA
In 2013, Africa AHEAD signed an MoU with ILF to partner in a small water supply project in Uganda, Apac District.
Through its partnership with Blue Planet Network, a division of East Meets West, and supported by the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, Lifeline was sub-granted to produce and distribute 3,000 rural fuel-efficient stoves to communities in Apac District, Northern Uganda.This project is part of the overall H2O Health Plus (H2O+) initiative that seeks to ameliorate the dire health and socio-economic situation confronting impoverished villagers in Uganda, especially women and girls. www.lifelinefund.org
Overall, the H20+ initiative is demonstrating the unique power of sustainable safe drinking water, hygiene and sanitation to provide measurable improvements in health (particularly childbirth safety, maternal health and early childhood health), health clinic capacity, economic vitality and education. Africa AHEAD will be assisting ILF to start 60 CHCs to compliment the Water Project.
