Bukasa 1, Mpigi District
“For a very long time we have had a very big challenge with accessing clean water, now that problem is no more thanks for this new water source. We are assured of clean water in the entire village. Before we had to walk for a long distance in search for clean water. The nearby pond would also dry up some times and we used to get worried of our children drowning into the ponds. But now it’s easier for us to collect water for our families, less time consuming and it’s clean”.
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.
