The Rotary Club of Taunton has recently donated £1,000 to support the Busoga Trust, a charity that supports and maintains the provision of clean water to remote rural communities in Uganda. The Trust not only helps communities build wells but importantly has a training programme for local maintenance engineers that ensures the wells are maintained and repaired. Engineers are locally recruited offering a sustainable solution to the longevity of the clean water supply. They travel from village to village to carry out their work and spread the all-important message about the need to extend and maintain clean water supplies.
