Local Humanitarian’s Clean Water Initiative for Children in Kenya and Uganda Collaborates with Knights of Malta of Romania


Marty L Ward, Founder of Confidence Builds Success Academy, Inc 501c3 (CBSA), says “CBSA’s mission is to Make bullying obsolete and civility a way of life around the world. Our vision is to provide communities with the knowledge to create harmonious relationships and access to clean water for healthy minds and bodies.” 

Right now, Marty needs 19 more water filters to reach her goal of bringing 48 additional water filters to Kenya and Uganda this March to provide access to 300 gallons of clean water a day for 10 years to approximately 21,600 more children. While there, she also will be training 100s of teachers, pastors, parents, and grandparents in the TAG 4 Change Method. 

Marty began training Pastor Buni Alex of Uganda via the Internet in the TAG for Change Method of treating everyone with dignity, civility, and respect in 2015. On Marty’s first trip to Uganda in March 2018, she saw women and children gathering water to drink from parasite ridden puddles. Marty, declared, “Children drinking water from puddles is NOT OK!” She vowed to find a way to get clean water to schools to make the biggest impact. 

As of December 2019, the TAG for Change method is taught in over 54 schools and 21 churches impacting 79,981 children, teachers, parents, grandparents and pastors. Schools and churches are now more self-sustaining. There is a decrease in the dropout rate of 66.4%, so schools are hiring teachers and an increase in church attendance, so churches have more resources to care for their petitioners. 

Through the generosity of The Knights Hospitaller Club- Knights of Malta, CBSA’s Clean Water Initiative will now include a water catchment system.

The Knight’s Catchment System is scheduled to be installed in Kayunga, Uganda by March 28th when Marty will visit it.

CBSA is proud to be among the humanitarian projects of the Knights of Malta. They are a non-governmental association whose purpose is to carry out and promote humanitarian activities and for charitable purposes in over 120 countries.

Their work supports the disabled, the sick and the elderly, the poor and the homeless, the promotion of the knightly principles and the support of young people in society by offering scholarships but also promoting the chivalric principles.

The installation of the catchment system this March will provide access to clean water for 7,000 members of the Kayunga community. This installation is made possible by collaborating with The Waterbearers, the Uganda Water Project, members of the Kayunga, Uganda, and CBSA team.
