Uganda Water Projects

In Uganda, half of the country does not have basic access to safe drinking water. This is entirely preventable.

  • Nearly 22 million people in Uganda cannot get safe drinking water in under a 30-minute roundtrip.
  • Preventing illness is challenging, as 78 percent of people have no reliable source of hand washing facility with soap and water.
  • The good news: Diarrheal disease, the second leading cause of death for children under five years old, is nearly eliminated by drinking safe water and practicing proper sanitation and hygiene.

Our Work in Uganda

Lifewater constructs custom water access and sanitation solutions in the globe’s hardest to reach communities. This includes places like Kaliro, Mayuge, and Kakumiro, regions in Uganda in great need of safe water.

First, local staff who know the cultures and language help communities adopt life-saving sanitation and hygiene practices. They love like Jesus by bringing health to their neighbors. Then, communities receive a safe water source built to last for generations, and donors receive an update with a photo of their impact.

(Note: data below from June 2015–August 2020)

“My wife and I were fortunate to find Lifewater. I could write for hours about them, the service and impact they provide. We love supporting them and look forward to many years of partnership!”

– Chris and Sarah McCabe, Lifewater Donors
