Compass Group’s 250th Well: Kitosi, Mpigi District, Uganda
“Community members in Kitosi village to acesss safe clean water they had to walk long hours to the nearest borehole. Due to the amount of time required to get clean water,many of the community members resorted to consuming dirty unsafe water. Provison of safe clean water was key in this community so as to improve the general health of this community. One of the local woman shared that her and the community realised the value of having safe water access close to their homes ,stating this “This well is not mearnt only for us but for the generation to come” This well is providing clean water to the community but it is also bringing the community closer together ,uniting them in their shared responsibility fo caring for the well. Thank you Steve. Thank you Compass!”

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.
