Our current project, SPLASH is a Donor Designated fund with the Community Foundation which means all donations are tax deductible made out to "Community Foundation- The SPLASH Fund" According to The Water Project, over 783 million people across the world do not have access to clean and safe drinking water. Of those people, 37% of them live in Sub-Saharan Africa. Further, 1 in 9 people worldwide do not have access to safe drinking water and 443 million school days are lost each year due to water-related diseases. The issue of available clean water is a global one that needs to be solved. The target populations for the project are the children and adults in the area of Kiburara, Uganda, a region that is in serious need of clean water where many go a week without water through talking with locals on the ground. Through our project, the population of 5,857 will have access to solar powered clean drinking water.
