Your climate-friendly stay helps provide fresh and clean drinking water in Uganda.
Together with your generous help, our partner, myclimate is at the helm of a vitally important project improving the lives of hundreds of thousands of children and families.
More than 210,000 pupils in Uganda benefit from the water purification systems myclimate has and continues to install. School children not only have access to a plentiful supply of safe drinking water but the project also reduces the need for single use plastic bottles.
In a country where 40 per cent of the population boils water for purification, removing the need to do so protects vast areas from deforestation. It also reduces CO2 emissions by lowering the use of non-renewable firewood and charcoal as fuel.
Water purification is done in a variety of ways through myclimate’s project – via solar powered water treatment devices, electric ultraviolet purification units and filters. With the dual benefits towards health and the environment, safe water also saves families time and funds that would otherwise be required to collect or buy firewood.
myclimate adheres to “Gold Standard” and “Plan Vivo” criteria, institutions recognised for setting the highest standards in their field.
