As we get ready to celebrate our 2nd birthday at Three Avocados, we're excited to announce that we've committed to a goal of providing 12 communities in Uganda with clean water in the next 12 months! We're super excited to invite you to follow along with us and watch your gifts and coffee purchases turn into clean water for these communities! We couldn't do it without you!

APOLIKA, UGANDA (December, 2012)

Aradyang is located in the Apac District of Uganda. This well now provides clean water to approximately 1,164 adults and children. The previous water source was a borehole (well), almost 2 miles away. This new water source now provides clean drinking water in their village, allowing more time for children to attend school!

ARADYANG, UGANDA (November, 2012)

Aradyang is located in the Kole District of Uganda. This well now provides clean water to approximately 450 adults and children. The previous water source was a protected spring, a little under 1 mile away. This new water source now provides clean drinking water right in their village, reducing time required to gather water, as well as providing a more reliable and safer source of drinking water.

BARMOLA, UGANDA (October, 2012)

Barmola is located in the Kole District of Uganda. This well now provides clean water to approximately 1,200 adults and children. The previous water source was a protected spring, a little under 1 mile away. This new water source now provides clean drinking water right in their village, reducing time required to gather water, as well as providing a more reliable and safer source of drinking water.

AMOLA, UGANDA (September, 2012)

Amola is located in the Apac District of Uganda. This well now provides clean water to approximately 450 adults and children. The previous water source was a well in another community, 1.5 miles away. This new water source now provides clean drinking water right in their village, reducing time required to gather water.

ACANKADO, UGANDA (August, 2012)

Ajobi is located in the Kole District of Uganda. This well now provides clean water to approximately 1,100 adults and children. The previous water source was an unprotected spring, exposing the students and villagers to diseases carried by livestock and wild animals that would drink from and bathe in the spring.

AJOBI, UGANDA (July, 2012)

Ajobi is located in the Alebtong District of Uganda. This well now provides clean water to approximately 1,970 adults and children. The previous water source was an unprotected spring, exposing the students and villagers to diseases carried by livestock and wild animals that would drink from and bathe in the spring.

ADUODYEK, UGANDA (June, 2012)

Aduodyek is located in the Kole District of Uganda. This well now provides clean water to approximately 1,200 adults and children at the school in Aduodyek. The previous water source was an unprotected spring, exposing the students and villagers to diseases carried by livestock and wild animals that would drink from and bathe in the spring.

ABAPIRI, UGANDA (May, 2012)

Abapiri is located in the Apac District of Northern Uganda. This well now provides clean water to approximately 1,680 people. The previous water source was a borehole 5km from the village. Villagers now have access to clean water, without the 6 mile round-trip for water.

AMURIA PRIMARY SCHOOL, UGANDA (April, 2012)

Amuria Primary School is located in the Albetong District of Northern Uganda. This well now provides clean water to approximately 785 people. The previous water source was an unprotected well, exposing villagers to potentially dangerous water contaminated with bacteria and disease.

ALWALA PRIMARY SCHOOL, UGANDA (March, 2012)

Alwala Primary School is located in the Albetong District of Northern Uganda. This well now provides clean water to an astonishing 2,580 people. The previous water source was a borehole in a neighboring village. This project both reduces the length of travel for clean water, as well as the stress on the borehole in the neighboring village.

AWINY PRIMARY SCHOOL, UGANDA (February, 2012)

Awiny Primary School is located in the Albetong District of Northern Uganda. This well now provides clean water to an amazing 1,531 people. The previous water source was an unprotected well, leaving the community with an unreliable source of clean water.

ALYEC, UGANDA (January, 2012)

Alyec is located in the Albetong District of Northern Uganda. This well now provides clean water to an astonishing 1,486 people. The previous water source was a shallow well, leaving the community with an unreliable source of clean water.

Alyec, like many other villages, has a water committee that maintains a small budget to repair any damages to their well. However, the repairs needed were beyond the capacity of the community. In particular, the well was in need of new pipes, rods, pedestal, pump cylinder, and some minor slab repair.
