Kaalo 1, Mpigi District, Uganda
“My name is Hassan Kizza, I am known in this community as the master of all small businesses. I have a small shop that sells groceries and local brew. Since many people drink the local brew in my community, it’s my main source of income. I have been spending a lot of money paying water vendors to collect for me clean water from the next community so that I can make the local brew. My customers trust me to deliver the best so I cannot let their trust down by using unsafe water from the ponds to make their favourite local drink. With accessibility to this new water source, am glad I won’t go through the trouble of travelling to the next village for clean water and I will be able to reduce on my costs of brewing. This will boost my business more and enable me to save some money at the end.”
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.
