Bujugo is among the villages near Bukoba, Tanzania where MPA’s group projects operate. Members in this village currently have seven water filters that are providing many families clean water each day.
The members have worked out a timetable so that one bucket for each of the water filters serves 7 families! The women in each of these families come to one of the places where a filter is set up to make clean water at their set time.
Clean water seems like such a simple thing, but for these women and their families, it means so much more. With the water filters, they each save a significant amount of time from what it normally takes to boil water to purify it. Additionally, they are saving money consistently by not having to purchase clean bottled water when boiling water is not an option. With the savings, they plan to pay forward a water filter to another group of women whose families can benefit from clean water as well.
The women of Bujugo thank MPA for this project and for being concerned about their health.
