Bunina 2, Hoima District, Uganda
“My name is Nabatanzi Evelyn from Bunina village in Hoima District, a single mother of five children. Surviving in this community was for the strongest because of the very many challenges we faced which included lack of access to clean safe water. I used to personally wake up as early as 5 am with all my children to get water from the pond. Clean water was only available in the very early morning. As they say the early bird catches the worm. Clearly in the community we could only get clean water if we are early enough. The water would be distorted and became muddy as more people draw it from the pond. By mid-day the pond looked like a brick laying pond with all the meddled mud in it. I am
very glad my children do not have to wake up so early again and we now have access to clean water now at any time with no worries of mud meddling and most importantly we are accessing clean water.”
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.
