Summary

The majority of communities in Uganda are forced to drink untreated water, which results in widespread illness and disease. With your help, we can buy 100 water purifiers for impoverished households in Rural Uganda. By doing so, we can promote treated water in areas and an increased focus on health care.

Challenge

In Mpigi, Uganda, almost all rural households have limited access to water, most of which is polluted and untreated. Currently, only 1% boil their water or treat it otherwise. As a result, illness and disease are widespread. This prevents children from attending school and adults from working or caring for their families.

Solution

Our locally produced water filters remove impurities and leave once-polluted water safe and clean. The clay filters are easy to use and transport and are very inexpensive. In comparison to using disposable water bottles or boiling water on a charcoal stove, our filters also use less energy and help prevent further environmental degradation.

Long-Term Impact

The water filters will provide clean water to hundreds of people in rural communities, allowing them to be healthy and productive members of their families and villages.
