Mama aloyo was already stirring on a grass mat on the floor of her mud hut in rural uganda. it was still dark at 5:00 am but aloyo instinctively knew that it was time to wake up and begin her daily chores. the first big task of the day for aloyo was to hike 2 miles for water. she knew it would take about 30 minutes to walk there but 45 minutes to return home because the 20-liter jerrycan on her head, weighing 44 lbs, would slow her pace.
carrying water was hard work but the daily responsibility was easier now that her 12 year old daughter, aber, joined her. aber had only been able to finish primary school. it just wasn't possible for her to continue to go to school because so much water was required everyday for their family of 8 kids.
without aber’s help, mama aloyo would spend 8-10 hours each day just to get water for her family’s daily needs for drinking water, cooking, washing, bathing, and laundry.
mama aloyo and her daughter, aber, are not alone. stories like this are a normal, daily part of life for most of the people in northern uganda.
but this doesn't have to be normal. life for mama aloyo and aber can change with your help. for only $3,000 we can drill a well in their village which will instantly mean walking a few steps for water rather than a few miles! a village well will change the lives of 1,000 people. when have you ever had the opportunity to radically change the lives of an entire village of 1,000 people for only $3,000? .
