Every day in remote Ugandan villages women and children walk up to 5 miles to fetch contaminated water. Girls may be abducted or raped as they walk the long distances. Clean, readily available water is a direct way to improve the health of the community, ensure the safety of children, and save time and energy.    We fund:

PROTECTED SPRINGS which enclose a water source preventing it becoming contaminated by animals, people or the environment.  184 springs have been protected  so far.
Would you like to remember someone with a named Spring?  These cost £615.

BOREHOLES where there are no natural springs .  18 boreholes have been sunk.  They cost on average £6,000 each.

WATER TANKS which catch and store rainwater.  They are placed where there are a number of orphans living alone or in the care of an elderly guardian. 27 tanks have been provided.

In 2015-2016 a further 3,500 people have been able to access clean available water.
