The consumption of untreated contaminated water is the main cause of diarrheal diseases in Uganda. Poorly disposed of garbage in semi and urban areas end up in open spring wells while for the case of rural areas animals drink from the same water access points where people draw water for drinking.
Approximately 7 million Ugandans lack access to safe water and 28 million do not have access to improved sanitation facilities.
Working with collaborative partners, construct and rehabilitate spring wells, and hand dug wells for schools and villages. One spring serves between 750 to 1,500 families.
Access to clean and safe water and sanitation facilities in communities helps reduce morbidity and mortality due to waterborne diseases.
KACCAD also disseminates information about proper management of clean and safe water access points and sanitation through trained and established Water User Committee volunteers in each village.
Since 2006, we have developed 39 protected spring wells, 2 bore holes, 3 hand dug wells, 1 water storage tank, 1 sanitation facility for clinics. Approximately 70,500 families have access to clean and safe water through KACCAD’s WASH program.
