thousands of people in Uganda now have access to clean water and a healthy future for their families.


In WaterSchool’s 11th year of transforming lives through clean water and good health, we reached over 125,715 people with training, equipment and education.

Because of WaterSchool, diarrhea, coughs and other waterborne diseases are no longer a threat to my family. I have learned the importance of hygiene, sanitation and drinking safe water. And I can now save enough money to send my children to school because I’m no longer spending money on taking them to the doctor all the time.

The SODIS method of water treatment is the easiest way of elimintating waterborne disease causing germs and, better yet, it is still affordable for the poorest members of our community to access. All it takes is a few plastic bottles.
