Improve Access to Clean Water

The village of Buwunga currently gets all of its water from the nearby lake (approximately one kilometer away); women and children spend much of their day carrying plastic cans of water up and down a steep slope.

This priority initiative supports installation of rainwater harvesting equipment at the school and in a central structure within the village. Gutters, collection tanks and related infrastructure to be installed.

DELIVERABLE:
Two rainwater harvesting stations, each capable of storing 20,000 liters.
