Next Spring two of AGM’s Service Engineers, Melvin and Phil Cotton will be installing a solar powered water pump supplied by AGM at a school and orphanage near Jinga, 70 kilometres north of the equator in Uganda.
As the children currently spend six hours a day collecting water from a poor quality supply, our new pump will mean they can spend that time in school and the water they use will be good quality, improving both their health and education.
Melvin explained “The project was started a few years ago by the charity Beacon Christian Fellowship and having been there for a few weeks working we have built up a friendship and were asked if we could help with this situation. How could we refuse putting our skills and knowledge to some great use and help these children have a better life.”
We will update you as the project progresses.
