I was in Karamoja for a construction project in2015 and we had a hustle getting water for the works,so we decided to buy water to site with water bowsers.Nearby communities kept frequenting the site begging for drinking water.I developed a passion of doing something about it.So as part of My company Corporate social Responsibilities,i came up with an idea of harvesting underground water.
