Planned projects



For the Amasiko Greenschool and the community of Hamukaka, the supply of clean drinking water is a major concern. Already since 2020 there are contacts between Amasiko e.V. and the TU Darmstadt, Department of Water Supply and Groundwater Protection. Ms. Anna Lena Rüddenklau, student of the above mentioned department accompanied the 2022 travel group to Uganda. This work is supervised by Prof. Dr. Wilhelm Urban and Dipl.Ing. Frederik Kip from the Department of Water Supply and Groundwater Protection of the Institute IWAR of the TU Darmstadt. Ms. Rüddenklau has examined the conditions of a water supply on site, carried out analyses of the water quality and, after evaluating all the data, will work out a concept for supplying the school with drinking water, including a public water tap, as part of her final thesis and make it available to Amasiko e.V.. All residents want a clean, affordable and feasible drinking water supply.




Withdrawal of spring, lake and rain water

The construction of a hygienic water supply has occupied Amasiko e.V. since its foundation: The supply of safe drinking water is not guaranteed for Amasiko Greenschool and the villagers. Until now, they have been using rainwater, and in some cases also lake water, without it having first undergone a purification process. This results in potential health risks, which are to be minimized with the development and construction of a water supply concept.In the Newsletter 2/2022 of the Institute IWAR of the TU Darmstadt the following has been published about the drinking water concept in an excerpt:

” German Water Partnership (GWP) Regional Forum Africa “.

“For the 39th meeting of the Regional Forum Africa on October 25, 2022 in Frankfurt am Main, Michael Kerstin (leader and GWP board member)this time welcomed the extraordinarily large number of participants of about 35 people in Frankfurt a.M. or hybrid in front of the monitors. Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Dr. nat. techn. Wilhelm Urban presented the department activities in Africa, especially the final theses as well as the stay of Anna Lena Rüddenklau, as well as the representatives:inside of the board and director of Amasiko e.V., Dr. Wolfgang Pfaff-Simoneit, in the context of which the survey and water resources analysis on the peninsula of Lake Bunyonyi, municipality Hamukaka, Uganda, was accomplished. It is the basis for a feasibility study for the permanent water supply of a school with about 300 pupils and the future community center “(Excerpt 2/2022 Newsletter IWAR Institute TU Darmstadt


With the purchase of a motorboat, children from the other side of the lake could also attend the school. The schools income would increase due to the school fees to be paid. At the same time, the purchase of a motorboat would allow goods and people to be transported on the lake. The fee to be paid would also benefit the Amasiko Greenschool.


This motorboat is used on Lake Bunyonyi as a means of transporting people and goods.



Means of passenger transport (boda-boda)

Boda-boda is the name given ti a motorcycle cab in East Africa. It is also very popular in Uganda, as other means of public transport do not serve all remote regions. The acquisition of a boda-boda could be used for errand trips of the inhabitants. It could also be used as a means of personal transport for teachers working at the school to travel home. The payment for the trips made benefit the community. Both motorboat and body-boda also serve to provide employment.









The further qualification of the teachers is an absolutely urgent measure, because up to now none of the teachers fulfills the formal requirements for the continuation of the teaching activity, which will be valid starting from the year 2029. Amasiko e.V. supports this measure and would like to enable all teachers of the Amasiko Greenschool to attend the Teachers Training College.


The school board demands 2 new, larger classrooms, a demand that Amasiko e.V. can fully support. The current classrooms have not been able to meet the requirements of the ever increasing number of students for some time now. Amasiko e.V., the teachers and the technical director therefore see the construction of a new school building as the most urgent task. The building, which has become too small, could then be used for the construction of a library, for the school administration and for a future small health center for the school and the community.


There is a lack of cabinets, shelves and suitable organization and filing utensils for the storage of teaching and school materials.


The existing school building does not yet have a false ceiling. During heavy rain, this leads to considerable noise pollution, which makes regular classes impossible. In addition, the classrooms heat up when exposed to strong sunlight. The installation of false ceilings would considerably reduce these problems.


The almost completed teacher:interior house does not have adequate washing facilities. A simple latrine serves as a toilet. The construction of a washing and toilet facility is therefore necessary.


With the establishment of a school garden, the financial burden of both the teachers:inside and the school for the purchase of food could be significantly reduced. Therefore, the purchase of a sufficiently large plot of land is highly desirable. Farm animals should also be kept and bred there.


There is no health care in Hamukaka. Amasiko e.V. supports the goal of the Amasiko Greenschool to develop into a community center where basic services are offered to the inhabitants of Hamukaka. This is to be strengthened by the construction of a small health station and a water tapping point in the course of the construction of a water supply for the school.

Amasiko e.V. supports these important projects.
