Livelihoods and Economic Empowerment (LEE)


Since 2001, DWU has provided safe water sources to over 34,000 households in Uganda and South Sudan

Northern Uganda, DWU’s major area of operation; has gone through a prolonged history of socio-economic problems ranging from civil unrest (war), famine and diseases all of these occurring as a result of the other. The climax of reoccurring insurgencies have led to the population displacement to Internally Displaced Peoples’ Camps (IDPCs) which led to poor social services, inadequate food supplies, and eminent abject poverty among the communities which makes the local community unable to pay for clean domestic water.
