Kiito 3, Mpigi District, Uganda
“No more walking long miles in search for clean water! Women and children have been spending massive amounts of time collecting water from a very long distance. The 20 litre jerry cans are so heavy for women and children but as you know in the African culture, women and children are the ones responsible for all household chores especially collecting water. The long miles in search for water, heavy jerry cans filled with unsafe drinking water makes it even worse. Our children have been losing out on time for education trekking long distances for water. Fetching water has been a very tiresome daily routine. Thank you, Canteen customers, for drinking RightWater. Your generosity has enabled us to get clean water in our village.”
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.
