The Gift of Clean Water
In Bukenke Village, many children were getting sick because their only source of water was from a contaminated stream. In February 2012 Project Lydia, with help from ATK Church was able to finance a new water well. The hand pump well brings clean water to 350 families.
Fresh Clean Water for Hundreds
In June of 2013, a natural flowing spring was dug out, piped, and concreted in Nakivumbi, Uganda. Hundreds of families now have access to clean water, with an easy way to fill their jugs from the continuous stream of water. The overflow runs down hill to water the nearby gardens and rice swamps. Thank you to the American team who labored alongside several local villagers to finish this life giving project.
New Toilets and Bathing Stalls finished in May 2013
Think about going to school or to church and not having a proper bathroom to use. Project Lydia built toilets and bath house that services the large nearby church and the school that we are in the process of rehabbing. Not a glamorous project, but a very necessary one…especially for girls and women!
Electricity is in and School Rehab started in 2013
In March 2013, electricity was brought into the school that we have started rehabbing. Our goal is to begin a secondary school for girls. Most girls in rural areas never make it to secondary school because of forced marriage, sexual exploitation, teenage pregnancy, lack of money, or just because she happens to be a female. We are wanting to make a difference in young girls lives, before she becomes another statistic. Will you help?
