Waduduma 4, Mpigi District, Uganda
“Access to clean drinking water is not that easy in our village. It rarely rains here so getting water is tedious and hard. Our people frequently become sick from diarrhoea and other water borne illnesses because they drink from ponds. The availability of this water source will greatly ease access to clean water and reduce getting infections from the dirty unsafe water. We are very happy we are going to be drinking clean water.”
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.
