Lubumba 2, Mpigi District, Uganda
“Our pond where we have been fetching water almost looks like a mosquito breeding ground. The water is so dirty, cattle drink from it, young children play from it throwing all kinds of garbage in the water. Community members have been uncontrollably making the pond dirty. With this water source, we will have control on sanitation so that we can drink and use clean safe water. Thank you very much for saving us from the pond 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.
