Peter Makero and Robert Eddaru Dhitwala – Sanitation for Health

Date grant awarded: February 2, 2019

Approximately 2,000 people reside in Lukoma, Uganda, which is severely affected by the frequent outbreak of diseases related to poor sanitation as a result of poor waste disposal. Located on the shores of Lake Victoria, waste is often washed down into the body of water during rainy seasons, a body of water that is the sole source for individuals. Peter Makero grew up in the region and saw first hand the number of children and adults that suffer from related diseases. This serves as his inspiration to identify and engage in hygienic activities that can address this community problem. Funds from The Pollination Project will help acquire the materials to construct a sanitation facility, thus reducing the risks for those in Lukoma.
