In the Mukono District, duringperiods of low rainfall when shallow water wells dry out, women and childrenwalk up to 10 kilometers in search of clean water. More often than not, thisresults in children not attending school and women having less time to engagein income-generating activities.
With funding from Vibrant VillageFoundation, EACO has constructed and repair boreholes in the villages ofNamasumbi, Nabale and Nyanja and trained residents in borehole maintenance andrepair to ensure sustainability. EACO will also conduct sanitation and hygieneeducation classes for villagers.
The goal of this project is to makeclean water accessible within 1 kilometer for 100% of the people in ruralMukono and bring relief to thousands of residents, including those insurrounding communities.
‘Thank you just Vibrant Village Foundation for bringing asmile onto our faces again our lives have been in danger but now we are safe. Godbless you all’ children of Naballe community.
