Generation U: Empowering Youth to Bring Clean Water to Buyala, Uganda

May 16, 2024

In the spirit of change and compassion, Generation U is thrilled to highlight the remarkable efforts of nine incredible students from across the United States. This summer, these young ambassadors of hope are embarking on a life-changing journey to Uganda, where they will bring access to clean water and hygiene education to some of the world’s most vulnerable communities.
 
Hailing from Colorado, Georgia, and Michigan, these students represent the best of the younger generation. With six students from Colorado, two from Georgia, and one from Michigan, they are united in a common goal: to ensure that the village of Buyala, Uganda, receives a sustainable water system. Their mission is ambitious but clear: to raise $20,000 to fund the entire project.
 
What sets these students apart is not just their willingness to travel to Uganda, but their proactive approach to involving their communities. They are leveraging their networks, reaching out to friends, family, and local organizations to gather support for their cause. Their dedication is a testament to the values that Generation U stands for: hard work, dedication, and the spirit of giving back.
 
Through bake sales, car washes, social media campaigns, and community events, these students are showcasing that age is no barrier to making a significant impact. They are proving that with passion and perseverance, even the youngest among us can drive meaningful change.
 
Their journey to Uganda is not just about providing clean water; it’s about fostering global citizenship and understanding. By engaging directly with the community of Buyala, these students will gain invaluable insights into the challenges faced by those living without basic necessities. This experience will undoubtedly shape their perspectives and inspire them to continue advocating for social justice and humanitarian causes.
 
Generation U is immensely proud of these young leaders. Their initiative embodies the core mission of our organization: to bring clean water and hygiene education to those in need while empowering the next generation to lead with empathy and action.

Together, we can ensure that the village of Buyala has access to clean water, transforming lives and fostering hope for a brighter future.
