2014

UGANDA

We are thrilled to announce that we are working with Compassion International to provide funding for their Water of Life program in Uganda. Through this initiative, we are funding filtration units for households in Uganda. Each filtration unit can filter one million gallons of water and can provide clean drinking water for life for a household!

NEYKON, UGANDA

Neykon, in the Apac district of Uganda, is a community of 1600 people. The residents were previously traveling over a mile to collect water from the next closest borehole.

ATOPI, UGANDA

Located in the Apac district of Uganda, this well in the community now serves 1092 residents. This well reduces the walk for villages from over a mile, to just a few yards from their homes.

2012

We are excited that in 2012, we were able to provide 12 communities with clean water! View the projects and details on our #12in12 campaign page!

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)

Abapiriis 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.

2011

AKAR, UGANDA (June, 2011)

The village of Akar is located in the Apac District of Northern Uganda and has a population of approximately 350 people. While they previously had a well, it had become unusable over recent years. This left the villagers with no choice but to use an unprotected well. These unprotected wells are often nothing more than a small pool, which is often a drinking hole for local livestock and wild animals, making it extremely likely to be teeming with disease.

Akar, 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, pump head, cylinders, and water tank.

OKWEROWILABONGO, UGANDA (June, 2011)

The village of Okwerowilabongo is also located within the Apac District of Northern Uganda and has a population of approximately 372 people. The villagers in Okwerowilabongo also had a previously drilled well that was no longer functioning. They had the choice of using an unprotected well, just as the people of Akar, or traveling 1.25mi. to the nearest well to collect clean water.

The repairs necessary in Okwerowilabongo were very similar to the repairs needed in Akar. Again, these repairs were beyond the means of the local communities' water fund.
