This Easter, Anna celebrates water at her door step.
Every morning Anna draws the water she needs for her young family from this 6,000 litre rainwater collection tank outside her front door. She makes the kids breakfast, gets them off to school and then tends to her garden, where she grows enough food to feed her own family and then some.
But it wasn’t always this way.
Anna lives in Rubanda, Uganda. The landscape is strikingly beautiful, but very steep. When the rain comes, it pours and flows down into the bottom of the valley. And when it stops, the dry season lasts for months.
A rainwater collection tank is a simple solution to a complicated problem, which is a part of the WaterSchool tradition. We believe in empowering families with basic infrastructure and training needed to change their own lives.
With water at her doorstep, Anna has more time to give to her children and enough water to grow a flourishing garden. Her life is completely changed.
This Easter, we want to provide another 15 rainwater tanks to families like Anna’s in Rubanda, Kisoro and Kanungu in rural Uganda. Will you join us in this life-changing endeavour?
A rainwater tank costs $700 to build and install. We’re aiming to raise $10,500 this spring to meet this great need.
Any amount you can give towards this goal would be greatly appreciated.
