Kikkira 2, Mpigi District, Uganda

“Water was very scarce in our community that we only got to use it for only the most crucial chores. We never had the luxury of wasting water on personal hygiene. We used to trek long distances to fetch water thus it became too precious to use on washing and bathing. Now we have water in abundance.”

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.
