Scarves for Water
In Burugo, Uganda, women and children are walking for hours to reach a shared water pump that often doesn’t work.
The people of Burugo know that the wealth of a community depends on the health of its residents. Clean water means money can be saved or used to educate their children, rather than spent on medicine to treat the many water-borne diseases that relentlessly ravage the community.
The AFRICAN DUSK scarf was selected to support Burugo and when we sell 500 of these limited edition scarves we’re able to drill a well. This brings clean water where none existed and changes every life in the community for the better.
Not having water affects our lives very negatively. The water we collect is used only to drink or to cook. There is poor hygiene because we cannot wash anything.
