Nawango 2, Mpigi District, Uganda
“Our sanitation has improved! Our community is so impoverished that even basic necessities are hard to attain. Every person has a right to clean water but in our community basic sanitation like washing hands, bathing was a luxury. We couldn’t afford. The little water we had was only to be used for cooking and drinking. The hunt for clean water was a real battle in our community. With this constructed water source, survival in this community will become easier. We now have available clean safe water and also hope to improve on our basic sanitation for a healthy living.”
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.
