Challenge

Children collect water that has flowed through waste-filled gutters. Community leaders say at least one child dies from diarrhoea in the village annually. The lack of access to sufficient amounts of safe water leads to human suffering and to loss of human potential which is ethically indefensible as well as economically wasteful.

Solution

This projects will maintain a spring water source in a village of 300 people in Mpigi village in Uganda, the new water source will provide distilled, safe and clean pipe water for the community

Long-Term Impact

The community will enjoy clean and safe water, this community has also mobilized some local contribution like stones and wheel barrows to be used during the water source protection.
