Our work in Uganda

132 Uganda Hero

We’re delivering lifesaving access to safe water in Uganda.

We currently operate more than 17,000 chlorine dispensers as of July 2023, following a rapid expansion with over 12,000 new dispensers added across 11 districts in just one year. We’re now reaching more than 4.7 million people and counting with access to safe water — more than 10% of Uganda’s population!

We’re also launching in-line chlorination in areas of the country where communal piped water schemes are more common – including peri-urban areas, and, increasingly, rural areas. This next-generation safe water solution builds on our chlorine dispenser expertise and infrastructure, ensuring availability of multiple, complementary solutions that can be deployed to meet the needs of even more communities.
