Kabuye C1, Mpigi District
‘This water source is very important for our community. We use water for washing and cleaning. My children help with water collection, which means sometimes they cannot attend their school classes on time as it is very long journey to and from pond. Now with this pump in our village we know that we will get enough clean water for our needs and our children can attend studies on time.’
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.
