Women are the economic engines of rural communities but their potential is locked up in the struggle for survival. They can spend over 10 hours a week looking for water and foraging for wood for their families. Once they have reliable access to safe water and a fuel-efficient way to cook, they can do so much more! They can turn their focus to growth: investing in education, farming, taking on leadership roles, and starting businesses to meet local needs. They can break the cycle of poverty.
This campaign aims to free up valuable time for women in rural Uganda. We need your help to make this happen. Your support will provide safe water sources that are close to their homes. It will provide fuel-efficient cookstoves that significantly reduce the number of trips women make to collect wood fuel. They will have time to thrive. And when women thrive, communities become healthier, safer, and wealthier.
