The Water Trust

We empower the poorest rural communities in Uganda to provide clean water and healthy homes for children and their families to thrive. We partner with villages and schools to address critical gaps in water, sanitation, and hygiene by building infrastructure and coaching community members.

New York, NY – EIN 260787621 watertrust.org

In Uganda, many poor rural communities do not have a source of clean water in their community. This lack of access means women and children typically travel an hour or more roundtrip, carrying jerricans that can weigh 40 pounds each.

_Many households also turn to their local pond for water, resulting in children and families drinking contaminated water. The impact of dirty water is chronic disease and stunted physical and cognitive development for children.
