Today I was unable to secure a vehicle to collect the geographical coordinates of the new water tap stands that will change the lives of around 5,000 individuals in this southwestern location of rural Uganda. I am trying to analyze the number of households that will be positively impacted by this new water infrastructure scheme. On average households were spending between 2 and 4 hours per day collecting the precious water in 20 liter jerry-cans for cooking, drinking and cleaning purposes. Women are usually the ones that do the work, girls and boys also spend hours just fetching water. Imagine the economic/wellbeing impact of reducing this time to 20 minutes... The inauguration was so important that a large commitive including Jeffrey Sachs, the Ugandan minister of water and the Ugandan minister of health were present to do the honors. Of course the CEO of the company that donated the pipes was also there, and the press!
