WHAT WE DO
We empower the poorest rural communities in Uganda to provide clean water and healthy homes for children and their families to thrive. We partner with villages and schools to address critical gaps in water, sanitation, and hygiene by building infrastructure and coaching community members.
INNOVATION THAT MATTERS
“Sustainable access to safe water is a priority for The Coca-Cola Foundation, and it is clear self-help groups can play a transformative role in building local capacity for effective water stewardship and long-term success."
Saadia Madsbjerg, President of The Coca-Cola Foundation
CLEAN WATER FOR COMMUNITIES
Construction of wells and protected springs brings clean water to poor, rural communities in western Uganda.
CLEAN HOMES FOR CHILDREN
SAVINGS GROUPS FOR SUSTAINABILITY
Practical community training equips people to build latrines and handwashing facilities out of locally-available resources.
A locally-led institution ensures there is money for well repairs, livelihood investments, and school fees.
"Having a safe and protected water point next to me was just in my imagination in the past. I thank The Water Trust. My family did not have options other than drinking from the open source in the nearby pond. I almost lost one of my children in the pond when she followed her elder siblings to collect water. I now have safe water accessible even for my children."
Beatrice Mumsie - mother of eight children
