Where does the money go?

This year we support the Climate protection project "Safe drinking water and clean air for Soroti / Uganda" of BOKU Vienna. According to the WHO, about 70 percent of Uganda's rural population has no access to clean drinking water. Water is disinfected by cooking over open wood fires, but this also causes health problems. A large number of people already suffer from serious lung diseases caused by air pollutants from inefficient wood burning. Furthermore, Uganda has one of the highest deforestation rates in the world. However, an intact environment, clean air and safe drinking water are prerequisites for a good life and indispensable for education, environmental and social sustainability and poverty alleviation.

The aim of the project: An emission reduction of 20,000 tonnes of CO₂ in five years by using solar water disinfection (SODIS method with WADI) in 2,000 households and improving the hygienic situation. You can find more information on the climate protection project directly on the BOKU Vienna website.
