AFINNET Safe Water
 

The scarcity of safe drinking water in rural Uganda is a fundamental problem that hinders progress in nearly every other effort to overcome poverty. Drinking water is most commonly obtained by collecting rain water. However impoverished rural residents live primarily in houses with grass-thatched roofs that provide poor surface areas for trapping rain water. In houses where rain water trapping is possible, the people's meager income prevents them from buying necessary equipment such as storage tanks.

AFINNET works to increase the availability of safe drinking water by:
  • providing advice and equipment for the trapping of rainwater
  • sinking shallow wells
  • improving bore holes and available protected springs
