Mitete 1, Mpigi District, Uganda

‘Thank you for this clean water for our village. I help my family collect water in the mornings and the evenings before I go to school, and it is very tiring. Now we have this pump close to our home I will be able to get to school on time and there is enough water to go around so I will not have to collect water by travelling long journeys in the evenings too.’

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.
