Providing safe drinking water to those most in need

Your donation will provide a safe drinking water supply to a rural community and improve health and education impacts to the lives of thousands of people

The Water Crisis

In many rural areas, drinking water from unprotected water sources (sometimes shared with livestock) is a stark reality.

Lack of access to clean water means that hundreds of thousands of people living in rural areas are unable to meet basic needs to improve living conditions.

Because these areas lack safe water, preventable water-borne diseases such as typhoid, cholera, dysentery and diarrhoea are highly reported.

The burden of water collection is typically tasked to women and children, who can travel up to 4 hours every day, many kilometres from where they live. 

Every day thousands of students head to schools with no clean water supplies.  Without access to water, education is almost impossible.

  

But access to clean drinking water changes everything.

Suubi Community Projects

Suubi Community Projects Uganda has been partnering with BridgIT to address the water challenges in the rural villages of Nabaale, Mukono district in Central Uganda. At the time when we applied for support, access in this region was at less than 30%, now it is improved to above 80%. Nearly 4 years of programs, BridgIT has constructed safe water wells for 100 villages, 40 Schools & 7 Health Centres impacting 200,000 people. The incidence of water-borne diseases especially in children has reduced.
