Mayungwe 1, Mpigi District, Uganda
“Before the installation of this well, we used to rely on any water source we could find, such as ponds and streams local to our village. We struggled during dry seasons when often we did not have enough surface water for all our needs. Now we need not worry about prioritising the water for our needs, and have as much use to get through our day happily. Thank you to the donors for making this possible.”
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.
