We visited the village of Otege Oguru outside Gulu, Uganda to inspect a well Aid Africa repaired. It serves about 110 families plus a school of about 500 local students – a total of about 800 people. They won’t have to share their water supply with all the goats and pigs and cows who pee and poo wherever the wish. No more cholera, no more typhoid, no more intestinal worms! Watch this 1-minute video.

Olweny Franco is 26 years old, married and is one of Aid Africa’s beneficiaries.
“I no longer worry. I had a bumper harvest out of my orange fruits trees given to me by Aid Africa. The oranges are of modified variety grafted, that is why they are very delicious and of high demand from the market. I sold the oranges and earned amount of money to buy for me two solar panels. As I talk now, I have bright light during night and I use the solar panel also for charging my cell phones which I bought using the money from the sale of my fruits. At last I have a dependable source of income which is the orange fruit trees from Aid Africa. Many thanks Aid Africa.”

Akello Filder lives in the village of Wigweng near Bobi, Uganda. Aid Africa taught her how to assemble and install a Six-Brick Rocket Stove in her home.
The insulating bricks are made in Aid Africa’s own kiln near Gulu and brought out to the villages. Filder had been cooking over a traditional open fire that consumed a lot of wood and filled her home with smoke.
“In this place we do not have many trees left for firewood,” said Filder. “This stove has helped so much because now I use less firewood. The stove keeps in the heat and makes it easier for us to cook.”
She says that the black spot you see on the wall is from her old open fire. “I mudded this stove in the same spot. Otherwise this stove does not make much smoke.”
Filder is just one of thousands of women who have benefited from Aid Africa’s Six Brick Rocket Stove.
A donation of just $25 will help Aid Africa install one Six-Brick Rocket Stove.
