ASHI was started in 2010 by a small group who identified a vulnerable community in Northern Uganda and mobilised local communities in West Lothian to provide medical equipment and spectacles to this population. Since then relationships have grown between the two communities and there has been exchange visits.
On the 31st January 2015, ASHI has commissioned its first priority project called Bala Water Project at Olai village, Bala Sub County in Northern Uganda. One borehole was drilled by The Good Shepherd Water Ltd which is supplying 'Clean and Safe drinking water to 600 people and thousand of passers-by in that area.
Bala Water Project aims to improve basic localised water resources in rural Uganda, empower and educate local communities on mobilisation of local resources for sustained access to clean and safe drinking water.
