Chris Roesel, a Rotarian WASH Cadre member of the eClub of WASH, leads a nonprofit P2P Inc, that is implementing projects in Yumbe.  He will be speaking to our club in regards to how our donation  will support the project.

The purpose of this project is to benefit twelve (12) communities of about 18,000 people in Yumbe, Uganda with water, sanitation, hygiene, and point-of-use filters. The goal of this grant is to provide the services to the communities and demonstrate their impacts. Previously, we have used these methods and the combination of WASH elements and measured the impact among 8,000 people in six villages of Yumbe. We have measured decreases in diarrheal incidence of 90%. The impact will be measured by decreased diarrheal and other water-borne disease incidence and expenses, increased income, and decreased school absenteeism of primary and secondary school girls. We will survey the impact of pre- and post-grant implementation.
