Mukono Part 2.

Mukono Part 2.

In succession to one of our projects in 2014 in a rural fishing community in eastern Uganda, we are happy to support a new project. The local partner we work with is Katosi Women Development Trust; member of the women’s network Women for Water Partnership.

The main objective with water is to increase the number of rural households’ access to clean safe water and to increase productivity in rural household through using water for economic productivity. Access to water gives households more time to engage in farming. Increased farm productivity helps the women to improve nutrition by growing vegetables around their homes. In Mukono 5 community wells and 24 rainwater harvesting tanks will be constructed, serving around 1.340 people with access to water.

In addition to the construction of water facilities, several committees will be trained in leadership skills to build their capacity in managing water resources.

In 2014 art photographer, Linelle Deunk, visited the project location and shot outstanding series of 25 black & white photos of the people she met and the landscapes she travelled. Read more.
