Across northern Uganda, many boreholes have been installed but have failed due to lack of maintenance. Repairing on of these wells will restore this water to the community that is desperately in need.
Our Impact Report in 2018 showed that women in remote northern Uganda walk up to 10kms 3 times per day just to get water.Often, when they get to the water source it isn’t even clean. Water borne disease and illness is high, and communities suffer the impact of an undrinkable water source daily.
The provision of clean water allows children to stay in school and complete their education, not being required to walk for kilometres every single day. It allows for women and mothers to tend to their crop, empowering them to provide food for their family.
Water is also a source of life and hope. It changes lives.
Your gift of repairing a new water well can impact anywhere from 150 – 500 households. With an average of 7 per home… that is a lot of people with clean water! We are partnered with Water for Africa who engage local staff on the ground to install, service and maintain the wells you provide.
Give the gift of life saving clean water today.
When you purchase this gift for a loved one, you are making a huge impact in northern Uganda on behalf of them.
