Katiiti 1 Village, Mpigi District, Uganda

“Jane, a mother from the Katiiti community, used to have to endure over 6km walk to and from the nearest water supply to fetch drinking water for her family. She now only needs to travel less than a kilometre to get clean drinking water, saving her a tremendous amount of time each day. Jane can now give her beadwork business, along with several other women in the area, making use of their spare time not spent walking to get water. The time saved allows women, who are usually responsible for fetching water, to spend their time on other important family activities.”

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
