EATBETA is ramping up its clean water well campaign
Despite the COVID-19 lockdown which hampered most of EATBETA’s activities, including the annual summer mission, five water wells were completed in 2020. That is a milestone for which the team at EATBETA and the beneficiaries of the five new water wells, extend sincere gratitude to the donors for the generous financial contributions which enabled the construction of the water wells at the following villages in Uganda:
The water wells are now providing clean water to over 1,250 households in the above-mentioned villages.
EATBETA is ramping up efforts to get more water wells constructed in other rural communities in Uganda where clean water is in acute shortage. A majority of rural communities lack clean water; villagers often have to travel several miles to fetch clean water; otherwise, they would have to settle for dirty water in the nearby ponds, also used by domestic/wild animals.
Our target is to have at least 15 water wells constructed in 2021, particularly in the communities where EATBETA conducts training and outreach programs. EATBETA’s programs are much more successful in rural communities where we establish water wells. In constructing the water well, the villagers are involved in the process, by helping to dig the hole, providing local materials (sand/bricks), providing food and accommodation to the contactors. EATBETA uses donated funds to build the water well and to purchase materials which the villagers cannot afford—such as cement, hand pumps, water tanks, pipes, etc. We welcome you to financially partner with us as we ramp up efforts to get more water wells constructed in Ugandan rural communities where clean water is in acute shortage.
