Kyerima 1, Mpigi District, Uganda
“For human survival and good health, provision of adequate water supply is a major challenge to many communities in Uganda. Majority of the communities don’t have access to improved water supply just like our village was. We want to take this opportunity to thank Benugo and Deutsche Bank for providing us with this source of clean water in our village. We have been fetching water from a pond which was putting us a risk of contracting water related illness but now we have clean safe water.”
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.
