With the precious gift of clean water, 13-year-old student Julius is now overflowing with happiness.
Meet Julius, a 13-year-old boy who lives in Nkuubi village.
A bright and caring young boy who enjoys playing with his friends and spending most of his days outdoors. However, affected by the water condition in his community, Julius cannot live a carefree life as children should.
The beautiful green landscape that Julius is surrounded by is sometimes dulled by the community’s struggle to obtain clean water. Without access to safe water, he is normally burdened by the task of retrieving water for his family. Days that Julius should be in school are traded with strenuous walks to collect water at the nearest source-- which is ridden with bacteria and diseases.
“I lost count of times that I needed to use water but could not access it to brush my teeth daily, bathe and quench my thirst after playing soccer with my friends at school,” says Julius, tired of the water condition in the village.
