Thanks to your generosity in early 2016, a community in in the Northern Region of Uganda has renewed access to clean water! The donations went to work rehabilitating a drilled well in a region where only 23% of the population has access to clean water.
Our local partners look to rehabilitate broken solutions whenever possible. When we repair a previously-built (non-charity: water) project, we save time and money versus starting a new project from scratch. We also train members of the community on how to maintain it for future repairs.
Families used to spend valuable time walking to collect water that wasn't safe to drink. Now, they're walking much less. Most importantly, the water they bring home is clean and safe.
We publish a project when we've approved a final report from our partners and made sure your project is working for the best of the community.
These are the GPS coordinates of your project, plotted in Google Maps. A GPS (Global Positioning System) coordinate is the exact latitude and longitude of any given point on the Earth’s surface. charity: water uses GPS coordinates to record the location of each water project we fund. Please note: there are many of different formats for GPS. We use degree decimal format.
This is the population of the community that has access to your water project.
This is the cost of the water project you funded. Costs vary by country and by project type, and depend on a wide range of variables such as the local cost of fuel and cement at the time your project was built. This project’s cost includes any hygiene training or community maintenance models for the project’s sustainability.
charity: water works with partners in the field to build and implement water projects. Our partners have years of experience. They know the land, the people, the culture and the most appropriate water technology for each area of work. They report this data from the field to help us provide proof of your completed project(s).
This ID is how we track your project in our system.
