During the 2011 GWWI East African Women and Water Training in Kampala, Charity and Afuwa learned how to build a rainwater harvesting systems with a storage tank. They brought the technology back to the women they work with in the community of Butagaya, Jinja in Uganda. These women, who had started micro-businesses raising poultry and goats in Butagaya, knew rainwater harvesting systems were an important and much needed technology for their families and businesses. So, after their return from the training, Charity and Afuwa's first action was to work with the Butagaya community to identify the most appropriate construction sites where all community members had easy access to the water—a location that also was easy to maintain.
