Kyerima 5, Mpigi District, Uganda
“The water sources in our community were quite far and are located in the forests. A lot of crimes were happening in the forests as they are dangerous areas. Parents had to restrict their children from fetching water to keep them safe. We are glad we now have a water source that is in the open not the forest. Girls and boys can now freely fetch water without insecurities.”
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.
