We take clean running water for granted but in Uganda this is a luxury. Phil and Melvin Cotton, two experienced AGM service engineers undertook the 22 hour journey to The Alpha and Omega School in Entebbe Uganda and used their skills and AGM equipment to make life better for 350 children.
During their four day stay they fitted solar panels to the school roof to power the solar pump, donated to AGM which they fitted to an 11 meter deep well in the school grounds. This means the children no longer have to undertake the dangerous walk to springs or miss lessons to get water.
Melvin and Phil were also able to transform one young man’s fortunes by buying him a pig and were obviously taken by the positive attitude of the people who’s daily lives are dominated by the need to find food and water.
