Waduduma 3, Mpigi District, Uganda
“My name is Nakato Evelyn, a lot of people have conned us in the name of constructing a borehole in our village. We collect money every year but get nothing for our money. People from other communities have made our community into a business venture where they come to collect money after manipulating us and promising to construct a water source for us. It’s a miracle that you people came and constructed us this water source without asking for money from us. It is safe water for our children and adults and most importantly there is clean water in our community, our people won’t be conned again. Thank you drop4drop.”
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.
