NPO Fukuoka-Uganda Friendship Association (FUUFA) is an organization aiming at boosting friendship and seeking for the continuous development between Japan and Uganda.

We donate wells to Ugandans every year who cannot have access to safe water. However due to Covid-19, we have been struggling with raising funds and we are determined to try crowdfunding this year.

解決したい社会課題(Social issue we try to settle)

ウガンダでは安全な飲み水にアクセスできる人は人口のたった7%(2017,世界銀行より引用)しかいません。世界では全人口の70%(2017,世界銀行より引用)が安全な飲み水にアクセスできており日本においては約98.5%(2017,世界銀行より引用) の人がアクセスできている状態を考えるとこの状況がいかに深刻が分かっていただけるかと思います。

Are you familiar with a goal "No.6 : Clean water and Sanitation" among one of the sustainable development goals (SDGs)? Only 7% (2017,Cited from the World Bank) of the Ugandan population can have access to safe water. About 70% (2017,Cited from the World Bank) of the population can access the world and about 98.5% (2017,Cited from the World Bank) can get safe water. Given the above mentioned figure, you can easily understand how serious the present status of water in Uganda is.

Aiming to provide safe water to Ugandans, FUUFA has already donated 18 wells for ten years since its establishment. We conduct events in Kyushu and collect funds every year. However Covid-19 prevents us from doing that, which drastically reduces the funds. Therefore we cannot donate any well at all this year, Regrettably there are not enough wells in Uganda and many regions in Uganda send out an S-O-S. We really appreciate your cooperation and donation for constructing wells Uganda.

このプロジェクトで実現したいこと(What we want to realize through this project)

ウガンダの西部ワキソ地区ナマユンバ の地域の方から安全な水にアクセスできていないとSOSが来ており、 今回クラウドファンディングを通していただいた支援金で井戸を建設する予定です。
井戸建設によってナマユンバ の 皆さんが安全な水にアクセスできるようになったらこのプロジェクトは成功だと考えています。ナマユンバの皆さんが井戸が完成したところを見て喜んでいただければ嬉しいなと思います。

From people in Namayumba, West Wakiso, we received an S-O-S that they cannot have access to safe water. We are planning to donate a well to them by taking advantage of the relief funds through the crowdfunding. We regard this project as successful when the donation of the well enables everyone in Namayumba to have access to safe water. We will be greatly honoured to see people in Namayumba pleased with the completion of a well.
The projected place for the well donation this time Wakiso, Namayumba

代表メッセージ(Message from FUUFA's representative)


The absence of reliable supply of safe water in many Ugandan rural areas is one of the major problems that characterize life there. Water reservoirs are often located far away from homes, so people have to walk long distances of 2-4 kilometers to collect water in containers. This is a hard and time consuming chore and in many cases the water is not adequately sanitary often causing disease outbreaks.
At the beginning ,we weren’t sure whether we would reach this milestone, but it’s all about passion for making a difference in people’s lives especially the children who are most vulnerable. We have received overwhelming support from lot’s of people in Fukuoka that has made it possible to do all those projects successfully.
The strong desire to help those in need help themselves and others, is the force that drives us in any activity we undertake to move a step closer towards our goals. Boreholes have made a great difference in the lives of the beneficiaries and are extremely grateful to everyone involved in this project.

最後に(Last but not least)

The Japanese feel the importance of water only in disasters such as earthquakes, typhoons, floods and so on. They take it for granted that they can get safe water 24/7. There are many nations where they cannot get clean water. Uganda is one of them. Having access to safe water saves a lot of lives. We really need your support as the same global citizens for the Ugandans who cannot have access to safe water.
