Florence, 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 Florence 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. Florence is now enjoying your gift of disease-free water and clean, private latrines at school!
“When I imagine the last time I was requesting for clean water and good latrines, I can’t believe that this is how quickly my request was honoured! Good and clean water is already at my school and just look at these beautiful latrines! Thank you so much!”
