Northern Uganda

Completed: 1996

Partnered with Water Can to build a water well in the village of Olepo in Northern Uganda. 285 villagers benefited from this clean water source. The villagers provided the labour, bricks and sand. A Water source Maintenance Committee was set up to “ensure that the water source is kept functional and users are carrying out good hygiene practices in order to maintain the “safe water chain” which involves the philosophy of keeping water clean from the source to the home and while being used in the home.”
