Stories and Community Profile

A new well project has begun in the village of Katikara in Uganda.  We’re waiting on this initial community profiles from our partner, but we did receive this video showing their current water source.

As is obvious from the video, this water is both unclean and unsafe.  We’re excited to see that significant progress is already being made on the new source.

As of April 28th, the new well in Katikara has been completed. The pump has been installed and clean water is flowing! We’ve updated the pictures below. Here’s a video we received from our partner showing the new well in use.
