BENEFITING: KIRONDE EDUCATION AND HEALTH FUND
Imagine growing up with no access to clean water!
If you like this charity PLEASE "like" us on Facebook or other social media network. We want the 400 or so orphans in this program to grow up as healthy contributors to society!
The Kironde Education and Health Fund, a 501C3 organization is working to help very poor villagers in Kigalama, Uganda, (E Africa) become a viable self-sustaining community, one village at a time. Lack of clean water is a huge obstacle and a health risk.
Little children have to lug water 1-2 miles from remote contaminated water holes several times a day for their families to have water. Children have drowned in the wells and young girls are at risk of being raped.
Rainwater Tanks take rainwater from the roof of their houses so children can go to school and have the time to read and study. They also help prevent disease. We have in place 36 tanks and want to do 40 more tanks that will help approximately 380 children.
