Mukono part 2, Uganda

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 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 3.750 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 October 2017 art photographer, Bastiaan Woudt, joined our trip to the project location. Read in this interview Bastiaan Woudt's personal story about his reasons to join us to Uganda, his experiences there and what good it has brought him – next to an impressive series of photos.
