“There is hope of amending our broken families with this clean water. My name is Namukasa Betty, a housewife and a mother. This is a very good opportunity and moment of joy for all the women in our community. Water scarcity was the biggest problem in our community. It also caused broken families. Personally, before I got married, I was advised by my aunt to always keep my home and myself clean but that is merely impossible because of the water scarcity. Getting water used to cost us a lot in terms of distance and time. Clean water at the spring was available only before noon and in the afternoon, it turns slightly dark that it cannot be good for consumption. Many other women in this community have suffered the same fate as me. However, we can now see hope of mending our broken families due to the availability of clean water in the community. Thank you for the clean safe water well. We fetch and use water at any time.”
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.
