Kiswero Village, Hoima District, Uganda
“I used to walk for more than 2 kilometers every day to fetch water from neighbouring village. Most times, people used to fight and line-up for long to get water . For the first time in our lives, our families can drink clean water from within the community. Thanks to Drop4Drop and Haileybury for heeding the people’s need, after the construction of this water source , we have realized that having clean drinking water prevented diseases like diarrhoea, typhoid, and cholera caused by poor sanitation and hygiene”.
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.
