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, end water related illnesses and poverty among people in water-poor communities in Sub-Saharan Africa, Uganda Eastern Africa.

We embrace humanity through providing safe water solutions to water-poor communities in Uganda with the help of both local and international Global Leaders on Water across the globe.

Our mission is to provide people living in water-poor communities with safe water solutions to end disease and poverty.

We provide safe water, sanitation & hygiene tools and health care solutions to people living in remote areas of Sub-Saharan Africa 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.
  • Water and Sanitation Education. We educate local people on best practices of managing their water resources, sanitation and hygiene to ensure healthy living.
  • Healthcare. Providing mobile health care services in hard to reach water-poor communities in Uganda
  • Collective Engagements. Giving global citizens the opportunity to actively help in tackling water problems using sustainable and innovative solutions.

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

The Water Crisis

Some facts about the water crisis in Uganda…

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.

19 Million Ugandans walk up-to 4.7 kilometers to treat water related illnesses.

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 especially in such situations, 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 an 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.
