Kulubya 2, Mpigi District
“I used to have to wake up at sunrise so that I could collect water for my family before the days work began. I would have to walk 2KM with a full jerry can, yet I knew this would not last me the full day. I would sometimes have to make multiple trips to and from my home to the pond to collect water, which would take time out of my employment and income generating activities. Now, I worry less – it is a huge relief to have this weight lifted from my shoulders.”
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.
