celebrating women: Uganda.

Blog Home | | from the field

We love women. Since International Women’s Day was Monday, we’ll share photos of some of the women we’ve met in the field all week long.

Today, we’re lifting up the mothers and daughters from northern Uganda. This community uses clean water from their new charity: water well and they also elected women to their Water Committee (which oversees the well’s operation). This is the first chance for women here to have a local leadership role and — as you can tell — they’re pretty excited about it. As are we!
