July 14, 2018 – assessing a well in Patiko village, Uganda.

Clean, Accessible Water = Life

April 30, 2018 – assessing wells in Gulu District, Uganda. Aid Africa builds sheltered springs, drills new wells, and repairs broken water pumps for local villages. Simply sheltering a natural spring can protect a water source from contamination by water-borne pathogens. But proximity to a clean water source is equally important to reduce time and energy spent carrying water to the household.

Tree Distribution in Bolipii

Trees

April 20, 2018 – distributing soursop and orange trees in Bolipii Village, Gulu District, Uganda. These fruit tree seedlings are ready to plant and will produce enough fruit for family use within 3-5 years, along with extra yield that can be sold at market. Just three trees will provide a family food and renewable income for many years to come. Renewable food and income sources = sustainable communities for the future!

Dear Friends,

I keep thinking of the people Aid Africa serves and how they benefit? I’m always asking if we’re doing our best for them. Is there a better way of doing something? What else should we be thinking about?

We’ve been working in the rural villages outside Gulu, Uganda for about ten years, giving out stoves and trees and bringing clean water. We’ve added HIV testing and counseling as well as distributing birthing kits to pregnant women. Today, I want to tell you how successful the villagers are. We’ve clearly improved the lives of about 500,000 people They are actually emerging from poverty! There is not only hope, there is progress!

Our newest stove is 32.4% thermal efficient meaning they use about a third as much fuel as on open fire. All those trees we’ve been planting are bearing large crops and people are making money from them. Oranges, mangoes, jackfruit, papayas, soursop (or custard apples). We’re created or updated dozens of water sources, each serving hundreds of people – and for many years to come.

I’d like to show each of you what we’ve done, but I know most people aren’t going to join me in one of my trips to Uganda – but you’re welcome! So instead, explore our web site – and not just the front page. There’s lots of information when you click on those tabs.

As you consider your donation choices in the coming “Giving Season,” please consider the quality of your donation to Aid Africa and how much good you will do; how many people your donation will help lead better lives.

Man

Here’s just one success story:

Mr. Uma James Ochola, 59 years old, is a resident of Owo, Kampala Village in Gulu District. He is a beneficiary of Aid Africa’s fruit trees project. Uma said he received four seedlings from Aid Africa; two oranges and two mangoes.

“I am happy to say that so far I have had four years of good harvests.  I get crops twice a year except this year it slightly dropped as a result of the dry spell.  I have not been able to make money out of it yet; I just want my family to enjoy the taste of these fruit.  The mangoes are unique in that the taste is like papaya and have no fibers. I want to thank Aid Africa so much for their generous support. These trees will help my next generation.”

Sincerely,

Peter Keller

Executive Director
