Eden Springs Supports New Water Initiative in Uganda

Europe’s leading workplace drinks provider, Eden Springs is helping to fund the construction of clean water wells in Uganda. In support of World Water Day on March 22nd, Eden Springs has pledged to make a donation for every bottled water cooler installed in March to help its charity partner, People Help People-One World, to build even more wells in Uganda.

Through contributions each year to the People Help People-One World non-profit organization, Eden Springs is committed to helping communities in central Africa. In 2014 and again this year, Eden Springs is helping to build several clean water wells in the Wakiso district of Uganda, 50km south-west of the capital, Kampala. Presently, 70% of the area’s 1.4 million inhabitants don’t have a source of clean water.

Approximately 17% of children aged under five in this area die from diarrhoea, while 12% of children aged 10-17 suffer from dysentery. Lack of access to a clean water source affects not only the health of the community but also its future development. Many Ugandan students, especially girls, drop out of school as a result of poor hygiene. This programme is helping students such as Silvia Namugenyi, a pupil at Sokolo Primary School. Access to water for Silvia as a young woman means better hygiene and sanitation and a clear, safe pathway to continue her education.
