Our current projects
Football plays an important role in the slums of Uganda. As part of this program, the boys and girls are taught the topics of water, toilets and hygiene in a playful way. The use of the facilities that have been set up should also be learned and internalized.
Our completed projects
School hygiene, Nepal
Poverty is still widespread and the pandemic has revealed that many public schools lack adequate toilets, drinking water and soap.
Responsibility e.V. participated in the renovation of various schools with donations of 2,500 CHF in June 2023.
Well construction, Ethiopia
Thanks to the donations and income from the badminton tournament, the construction could be financed with an amount of 4,700 €.
Latrine construction, Niger
With another project together with the SOS Children's Village Switzerland, the construction of latrines was supported in the Niamey region in Niger.
Harmful behavior and a lack of hygiene are major issues in this area. Parents and students learned how to keep latrines and water pipes clean by means of educational campaigns.
Responsibility e.V. financed this construction in September 2022 and made the implementation possible with a donation of 2,500 CHF.
Sanitary facilities, Armenia
Along with the cold, hygienic care is one of the biggest problems. It was common to build toilets and kitchens away from the house, and there were no showers or plumbing.
Thanks to the donations, the construction of water connections and sanitary facilities could be supported in June 2022 with an amount of EUR 5,000.
Cardio monitor, Philippines
Covid-19 hand hygiene, Zimbabwe
Health project Adwa, Ethiopia
Our last project was to promote the health and hygiene of the mostly single parents and their children in the communities of Adwa. The city of Adwa is located in the northern border area between Ethiopia and Eritrea. A conflict over the border has been simmering there for years. The hygienic conditions are bad.
Responsibility e.V. wanted to finance the total project costs for the year 2021 of the SOS Children's Village with the help of your donation.
Children's home La Buena Semilla, Peru
With our fifth project we were financing the renewal of the well system and the water tower. The aim was to improve the water quality and hygiene of children and their carers in the La Buena Semilla children's home in the Amazon of Peru.
The Isaiah Foundation is a Canadian organization that is commited in Peru for abandoned and abused children. The home is about 10 kilometers outside the village of Puerto Maldonado and offer a haven for 10-12 children aged 4-6 years.
The home exists since 2009 and in the past 10 years the well system has deteriorated and the water tower was in danger of collapsing. Accordingly, the water quality had decreased significantly.
The renovation will not only allow better filtering to be installed in the future but also ensure clean water when the house is expanded.
Responsibility e.V. was able to finance this important investment of 5.500 US-Dollars with the help of your donation.
Children's home Manuela, Bali
Our fourth project did target the water supply and sanitation of children and their caregivers in the children's homes Manuela I and II in Balangan - Bali, Indonesia.
The Foundation for Leprosy and Child Relief in Indonesia is committed to help lepers, orphans and otherwise impoverished children in Indonesia, and operates local hospitals and children's homes. This includes the children's home Manuela I and II in the village Balangen, which is located on a limestone hill. As a result, water seeps underground very quickly and water was only found at a depth of 100m.
The biggest concern of the children's homes is the maintenance of electricity. As part of the buildings and to ensure a smooth power supply, the children's home is forced to install emergency generators. The state is unfortunately unable to deliver electricity without interruptions. Without this stream not a drop of water is coming from the taps in the children's home. So there is no food, no clean children and the toilets are not working.
To provide a power supply even during the regular power outages, which could take up to 2-3 days, the installation of own power generators is the only solution.
Responsibility e.V. contributed to the financing of a generator for the children's home in Balangan and was able to support the redemption of short-term loans in March 2020.
Kandyaa Child Protection Centre
Our third and current project aims to improve the living conditions of children and their care takers at the Kandyaa Child Protection Centre in Sodoké, Togo.
The children at Kandyaa are victims of brutal violence, exploitation, child trafficking, social exclusion and gross neglect. Many of them have been abused, ostracized and expelled as so-called witch children. Children in these emergency situations are able to find temporary shelter, protection, and psychosocial care at this state-recognized institution. Where possible, children within the centre’s care are prepared for family and social reintegration.
To supply the centre with basic food stuffs, Kandyaa has its own farm only 8 km from the institution. At the farm, chickens, rabbits, and sheep are kept, and fruits and vegetables, such as corn, beans, yams, and peanuts are cultivated. In recent months, the farm has developed into a protective environment for agricultural education of older children (14 years and older). With this growth in services, the current simple latrine and small washroom is no longer sufficient.
With the help of your donation, the RESPONSIBILITY Club will fund the installation of a new, gender-separated sanitary facility to improve hygiene standards at the child protection centre.
Following successful completion of the Club’s first project in December 2017, our second project centred on supporting healthcare workers at the Matyazo Hospital in Tanzania.
The Matyazo Hospital is a Tanzanian medical care facility located approximately 45 km northeast of Kigoma. The hospital is an important facility for obstetrics in the Kigoma Region, where more than 1300 babies are delivered, and nearly 1200 surgeries are performed each year.
Through donations from employees and fundraising activities held throughout the year, the RESPONSIBILITY Club was able to successfully raise the $4,800 USD necessary to purchase the surgical lamp. The funds for the surgical lamp were officially donated in July, 2018.
General Trias Medicare Hospital
In situations where patients must be transported to healthcare facilities with greater medical capabilities, there were few safe and reliable transportation options available.
Thanks to your donations, patients are now able to be safely transported to and from the hospital.
