Digging the Pipe Trench for Buhanga Village Water—thanks to Darren Muise

Posted: Tue, April 19, 2016 | By: Mother Givers Humanist School



​Villagers in Buhanga, a tiny village in the Ruwenzori foothills, are currently digging a three-mile long trench to bring water to their thirsty community.

The pipe that will be inserted into the trench was purchased by Brighter Brains Institute (BBI), via funds received from Darren Muise of Montreal.

Buhanga has no freshwater source, and many in the community (especially children) are often sick from drinking unclean water in stagnant ponds near the village. To remedy this predicament, BBI has done the following:

1. Established a clinic to provide medicine at Mother Givers School in Buhanga (via funds from Bob Pellissier)

2. Purchased a “Rainwater Harvester” for the village, to catch rainwater (via funds from Reddit R. Atheism)

3. We’re putting in 3 miles of pipe to bring fresh water down from higher up on the mountain (via $3,000 in funds from Darren Muise)

The villagers in Buhanga have all volunteered their labor, to dig this trench and put in the piping.
