Kizaama 3 Village, Mpigi District, Uganda

“Before this water source was constructed in this village, community members, especially women and children, used to walk a long distance in search for clean and safe water. This would also require children waking up in the wee hours of the morning to collect water before going to school. It was unsafe for the children to walk two kilometres, especially all alone. Life was very difficult especially for Women and children before the construction of this source of water.

Now the situation has changed in our community, there is clean and safe water and this brings a lot joy and gratitude to us. Thanks to Life Water and Clifford Chance for constructing for us this clean source of water in our community.”

Amina Namuzinda, Community Member.

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.
