This micro project will buy water purifiers to 20 House Holds in the village of Kafumu in Uganda.The clean water crisis is the number 1 global risk based on impact to society (as a measure of devastation), and the number 8 global risk based on likelihood (likelihood of occurring within 10 years) as announced by the World Economic Forum, January 2015.More than twice the population of Ugandans lives without access to safe water.
Majority of this community fetches unclean water from un protected water sources, 1% of the House Holds in this community boils water for drinking.750 million people around the world lack access to safe water; approximately one in nine people.82% of those who lack access to improved water live in rural areas, while just 18% live in urban areas.
This micro project will purchase 20 water purifiers.Each House Hold will receive 01 water filter to enable them drink safe and clean purified water. Water filters provide safe and better tasting and better smelling drinking water by removing chlorine and bacterial contaminants.
The use of a water filter filter results in a source of clean, healthy water that costs much less than bottled water. Its more cheaper to use it as compared to boiling water that costs a lot of fuel and charcoal.
