A New Well for the Village

In a rural village near the trading center of Namungalwe in Uganda, a young girl demonstrates the use of a new well that was just constructed in her village by a NGO. With over 90% of Ugandans surviving as subsistence farmers, and little infrastructure outside the city, the impact of NGO's has been great in rural communities like this one.
