Kapwatai Spring Protection (Uganda)
Water For Life
There are many natural springs in Uganda, but at source, you often find people and animals accessing the same contaminated water. This is not healthy for the villagers and often leads to illness. In 2014 in the village of Kapwatai, Humanity First encased the natural spring in concrete and established taps such that the villagers can now access the water safely, and can also use run off water for irrigation and for their livestock. This is one of many such projects done in the south and east of Uganda.
