In Uganda providing water in rural and urban places has been one of the highest priorities, which has a direct impact on the living standards and future development of this nation. According to the national Poverty Eradication Action Plan (PEAP) it has been highlighted that the water supply and sanitation are key issues, which hinders economic development and social transformation.
What we did
This year has been very special for the Water For Life team. It wasn’t necessary to sent an engineer to do any rehabilitation. All the work has been done by the locals who were trained. The local WFL team rehabilitated 30 water and drilled five new boreholes in the Kitonga district. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs Oreym Henry Okello from the Republic of Uganda send a letter our IAAAE chairman Mr. Akram Ahmadi thanking us for our generous work to elevate problematic issues regarding access of clean water and other related issues.
Water For Life in Uganda has been established for many years. Our continuous efforts in learning and training local people for fixing broken wells has greatly improved the availability of water in numerous villages. Through Water For Life we are providing water to over 15,000 people this year alone.
