Reddit water tank enjoyed by children of Buhanga

Posted: Tue, April 05, 2016 | By: Past Projects

​The water tank donated below to Mother Givers Humanist School in Buhanga, Uganda, is being used and appreciated by Mother Givers School children in the photos below.

Buhanga is a remote tiny town 3 miles up a trail in the Ruwenzori mountains.

Ten women from the village met with representatives of Brighter Brains Institute (BBI) in November, 2015, to ask them for help. Their village has no fresh water, the closest fresh water is 2 miles away, and the kids are getting very sick with diarrhea and other diseases because they get thirsty and drink stagnant water in ponds.

Brighter Brains Institute is a think-and-do tank in the SF Bay Area that does crowd-funds to raise cash for Humanist/Atheist Humanitarian projects. BBI set up BiZoHa the world’s first atheist orphanage, then Kahendero Humanist Nursery School and it has recently “converted” four schools into adopting its Humanist Curriculum.

A redditor saw BBI’s petition for funds and purchased the village a water tank. Thanks!

BBI has also set up a clinic in the town and it purchased enough pipe to transport fresh water into the village.
