Nkanaga 1, Mpigi District, Uganda

“Our lives have changed! We used to collect water from our neighbour who had a hand dug well. He used to charge us for this water. We paid 300 Uganda shillings for each jerry can of water. Because we had to pay for the water, this limited us on the quantities we need for home use. But since we now have a new source of water with clean and safe water, this has changed our lives and reduced the risk of becoming infected with water related diseases. Water is readily available and free.”

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.
