Sitaru means 3 in Lugisu, the local language. Action Sitaru reflects that real action taking place during the third phase - the Implementing Stage - of the programme cycle.
Hundreds of volunteers have previously joined Team LBA in Manafwa, playing an intricate and exciting role in the programme cycle. Volunteers live and work in the community whilst contributing to the completion of Phase 3. LBA follows a strict policy to promote responsible volunteering
and ensure volunteer projects are needs based and respectful of local values and culture.
After undergoing an intensive training from LBA, volunteers team up with community groups to complete the implementation stage of the projects. Not only do volunteers, both international and from the local community, assist in the construction of water tanks and protected water sources, volunteers also help organising and training project committees set up to increase maintenance and sustainability of projects, and provide WASH & stove related training to the surrounding community. Many of the international volunteers also fundraise for the projects they work on so can see first hand directly where their donation is going.
