The Need is GREAT!

According to a report by UWASNET, presented on April 7, 2016 (World Health Day) there is still a great need for WASH development activities in Uganda.

Hand Washing With Soap

  • 33.2% of population have access to handwashing facilities at the toilet
  • ≥ 50% of population wash their hands with soap after toilet use
  • 38% of schools have hand washing facilities

Access to sanitation facilities

  • 77% of rural population with access to improved sanitation
  • 48 districts did not meet the national target of 77%
  • 1:67 is the pupil: latrine stance ratio
  • 2Million Ugandans lack toilets / latrines

Access to safe water

  • 73% have access to safe water in urban areas
  • 65% have access to safe water in rural areas
  • Nearly 11.5Million people in Uganda do not have access to safe water
  • 16,350 out of estimated 109,000 rural water point sources are not providing water as expected


You may not be able to build a latrine, drill a well or train individuals yourself, but you can support Divine Waters Uganda to do so on your behalf...
