Bilongo 2 Village, Hoima District, Uganda
“Before the construction of this water source was completed in this village, life was very difficult, especially for mothers like me with two children to take care of. The nearest water collection point was some 5km away. We would wake up early in the morning and endure the long queue at the water point in order to get water for drinking and cooking. Sometimes we would buy a 20 –litre jerry can of water at 200 Ugx from the water vendors. Now we have a clean source of water in their community. Thanks to Every well water Foundation for the generosity.”

This project was undertaken as part of our campaign of projects that actively reduce carbon emissions. This project helped the community save their much needed wood which was previously being burnt daily to boil water. This project has also eliminated the many thousands of hours previously spent on walking to collect water.
