Patricia, a young student from Kisabo Village, walked many kilometres a day to fetch water from a stream shared with animals and other humans who also drank and bathed in it. As a female, she was two times more likely to make this journey than her male peers. Days of school were missed due to water-related diseases and when Patricia was in school, she was unable to focus or study because of dehydration.
But then people like you stepped in and partnered with Acts for Water to bring clean, safe water to the community of Kisabo. Patricia is now enjoying your gift of disease-free water – her cup and her smile are overflowing!
“I want to thank Acts for bringing clean water to our school and for saving us from walking long distances behind hills and that you saved us from not having common diseases. When I am in class and feel thirsty, I just walk to the compound and find a tap! Thank you so much for honoring our request!”
