Safe, Sustainable Water for 8,000 people in Uganda



This Water Missions International project provides 8,000 people (an entire village) with safe, sustainable water and health and hygiene training in rural Naminya, Uganda, Africa.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Naminya, in the district of Mukono desperately needs access to safe water. They currently travel to get water, and that water is dirty and contaminated. This project will install a Living Water(TM) Treatment System closer to the community and build a water lagoon at the stream and pump water a distance of 350m to the system. The entire community of Naminya will benefit.

How will this project solve this problem?
