Provide Water Purifiers to 100 Households

With your help, we can buy 100 water purifiers for impoverished households in rural Uganda. Currently, the majority of Ugandans drink untreated water, resulting in widespread illness and death, especially among children. Global Giving sponsors like you have already allowed us to buy 40 water filters that have significantly changed the lives of hundreds of people for the better.
About Our Partner

Mountains of hope childrens ministries

Mission statement: Empowering communities who work to ensure that children growing up in poverty get good health and an excellent education. . Founding principles:To efficiently respond to the urgent needs of orphans and vulnerable children and the communities they live in through offering formal education to them by paying for them school fees, and provision of other scholastic materials like school uniforms, we believe that education is one of the fundamentals of success

The Problem

In Mpigi, Uganda almost all rural households fetch water from standing and polluted sources, and then leave it untreated. Currently, only 1% boil their water or treat it otherwise. As a result, illness is widespread, preventing children from attending school and adults from working or caring for their families.

The Solution

Our locally produced water filters remove impurities and leave once-polluted water safe and clean. The clay filters are easy to use and transport and are very inexpensive. In comparison to using disposable water bottles or boiling water on a charcoal stove, our filters also use much less energy and contribute less to environmental degradation.

Sustainability

The water filters will provide clean water to hundreds of people in rural communities, allowing them to be healthy and productive members of their families and villages.
