Bubemba 2, Mpigi District
“Absence of clean water is felt mostly by women in Uganda because we are charged to fetch water for their families and most times we are escorted by our daughters. We have to walk for an hour, up and down the steep hillside, four to five times each day, to collect water. So it cost us as women to have clean water for our families. But water is essential for our families. Thank you Saskia for remembering us when no-one cared.”
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.
