Family Planning – IHA, In collaboration with Marie Stopes International, organized  Family Planning Camps (FPC) in four rural communities to provide family planning services  and cervical cancer  screening. Approximately 1000 women and 100 men attended the “camps”.  Some 20% of the women had infections so bad they could not be screened for cancer. Funds for treatment were immediately sent.

Micro Loans – IHA continues a commitment to empower women and support healthy rural communities through its micro loan program.  Five new micro loan groups were funded in Paya (approximately 10 women per group). Three new groups were also funded in Nanwasenga, bringing the total number of groups in the community to ten.   Currently, IHA  supports some 43 active, women-managed micro loan groups.



The following projects were accomplished 2018:

  1.  Solar power was installed at the Victory Primary School, Iganga District.
  2. Health seminars and  hygiene kits were provided to girls at several schools.
  3. The on-going status of IHA’s micro loan program was reviewed with community participants at each site.
  4. The RPI education server system (see below)  was inspected at several schools.

Planning for Education, Health, and Infrastructure – IHA volunteers have made significant improvements with it’s RPI educational server based on the Raspberry PI 3.  A power down module was developed which will protect the system from a sudden power loss and allowing one button operation.   Plans are to install the system at 1o to 15 rural schools.

IHA continues to work with OVIVO Water, an international water company, to tackle the issue of fecal sludge waste management particularly in rural communities.  A promising partial solution is to mix the sludge with biodegradable waste and produce fuel briquettes.
