MEET: HASIFA KIVUMBI
MISS UGANDA USA
FOUNDER OF CLEAN WATER FOR UGANDA PROJECT.
As a little girl I spent many hours walking to fetch water for my family.
In 1999 I relocated to America and my life changed forever. I never dreamed that a day would come when the distance between my living room sofa and my kitchen sink would be merely square footage and I could use words like abundance to describe my water supply. Shortly after being in America my quality of life changed, I was able to be a child, and the many hours previously spent on the water quests were now spent in the classroom and at the play ground.
It was many years later that I learned that by simply having access to a reliable water source, I was in a position to thrive unlike before. My adversity as a child led to my greatest opportunity. I knew that I had a big responsibility to the many girls and women of my country whom to this day are still walking those long grassy miles for that liquid gold.
Please Watch the video below and see for yourself the amazing work by the team led by the dynamic Hasifa Kivumbi. What a difference she is making, impacting the lives of multitudes.
