Lack of access to safe, clean water causes wider issues of inequality. It can impact on food security, livelihood choices and educational opportunities. This is especially true for women and girls, who do most of the water carrying and domestic chores

Water in Uganda

Uganda is a landlocked country in East-Central Africa. Politically and economically, it has made huge progress in recent years. But many people living in rural communities still face great challenges and water is one of them.


Over half the people don’t have access to clean water
24 million people

8 in every 10 people don’t have a decent toilet
35 million people with nowhere to go

Water-borne diseases kill thousands each year
33 children die every day from diarrhoea

Where we Work


We want to target those communities that need it most – the rural towns and villages that face the biggest challenges with WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene).

In 2020 we will focus our programmes in Eastern Uganda – in Bukedea District. We have the support of the local government and community groups to work with the young people of this region to improve water access. With your support we will be able to expand to other parts of Uganda.
