Take A Child To School-Uganda (TACTS-UGANDA) is a registered Non-Government Organisation which was established in 2014 by Mr. Mubiru Mahad and a group of children rights activists and professionals in response to the increase of under privileged children with an ambition of facilitating them with educational and health services.
Take A Child To School Uganda is a charitable, indigenous and not-for-profit children centered organization established with a mandate of providing education, skills and improving the livelihoods of children in their homes. We are dedicated to supporting orphans, disabled and underprivileged children with scholastic materials, schools fees, soft skills and financial support to their guardians / grandparents as a way of empowering them to self-sufficiency. With over 200 children under our support and care, we have managed to address their plight by providing them with clean water, good learning environment, health facilities as well as food at school since 2014.

Why the CLEAN WATER FOR COMMUNITIES Project;
People in Uganda's rural communities have limited access to safely managed water. These challenges have been exacerbated by high poverty levels. Generally, women and children are the most affected by an inadequate safe water supply. They bear the burden of carrying water for long distances at the expense of other economic activities and girls lose out on education. In Uganda women and girls, who are the major water collectors, users and managers and the major promoters
of household and community sanitation activities, spend about 55% of the time on collecting water daily. Lack of safe and clean water put people in communities at a high risk of contracting water related diseases like diarrhoea, dysentery and cholera.
The CLEAN WATER FOR COMMUNITIES project is a voluntary based health promotion initiative spearheaded by TACTS UGANDA aimed at mobilizing resources from well wishers to construct clean and water sources for selected rural communities that are struggling accessing safe and clean water. Project goal: Rural Communities have sustainable safe water sources at their disposal.
To Increase access to clean and safe water supply in the rural communities to structurally improve basic health.
The proposed project will focus on improved and equitable access to sustainable safe and clean water facilities in rural communities in districts of Uganda.
