Kawasenyi 1 Village, Mpigi District, Uganda
‘Before Drop4drop’s intervention in this community, this community had no access to clean water and many of the households depended on insecure water sources such as open ponds.This had produced heavy workload to women, children and girls
who in the context of Ugandan culture are the ones who are supposed to collect water.“With my children, we used walk to the water source to fetch water for my family. We could spend many hours in search for clean water.This was heavy burden to us. With the construction of this water source in my community, now our community has clean and safe water. Special thanks to Water wells and Drop 4 drop for constructing this water source in this community.’

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.
