About WaterCause Org

Welcome to WaterCause.Org

Watercause.org is a development WASH organization that was founded to improve access to safe and clean water among people in water-poor communities in Uganda, Eastern Africa. We embrace humanity through providing safe water solutions to water-poor communities in Uganda.

Our mission:  Provide safe water solutions to people in water-poor communities.

We provide safe water, sanitation & hygiene tools and solutions to people living in remote areas in Uganda where clean drinking water is no reality.

 

Our work focuses on building self sustaining communities that effectively manage their own water resources for more productive and healthier lives. We achieve this through;

  • WASH infrastructure development. Drilling wells, building rain water harvesting tanks, improved latrine facilities for schools, families and communities in a participatory and inclusive manner.
  • WASH Education. We educate local people on best practices of managing their water resources, sanitation and hygiene to ensure healthy living.

Make today a special one, give safe water to more people.

The Water Crisis

 

23.8 Milion people in Uganda don’t have access to safe water in their communities.

28 Million Ugandans lack access to improved sanitation facilities.

Over 4500 children  under five years die from diarrhoea caused by poor sanitation.

 

Running water is not a reality in many parts of the country here in Uganda.Young school going children, women and girls in homes are the primary water-fetchers and spend large parts of their days lugging water rather than studying or engaging in more productive activities.

Menstrual hygiene is hard to manage for young girls in schools who finally end up dropping out of school. Without appropriate infrastructure, Sanitation and hygiene in homes and schools is hard to manage which results in many water-related diseases which many people in these communities can’t afford to treat and thus loss of life to the deadly yet preventable water related illnesses.

Globally poor sanitation and open defecation practices in developing countries kill more children every year than AIDS, malaria, and measles combined according to World Health Organization and UNICEF.
