Water is life, everybody knows that. According to our surveys, it is the most wanted wish, even in a country like Uganda, where it can rain a lot during rain seasons (IF it rains of course. Due to changing weather patterns, nothing is sure anymore).
Boreholes often break down, water tables dry out, so the people told us that they would love to get connected to piped National Water, even if that means they have to pay a bill every month. At least piped water can be counted on most of the time, as for rain… you never know.
So one of our current programs is access to a safe water chain, in partnership with the government.
In the past we have given out tanks to catch rain water, but if it doesn’t rain, its not much good either.
