Children in Gulu celebrate Water & Health For All's rehabilitation of the borehole well Wang Ojara in 2015.

Achievements

  • WHA has helped empower 6,500 vulnerable people in Gulu to sustainably access clean water. This has been achieved by simultaneously rehabilitating contaminated and damaged borehole wells while providing training in sustainable water resource management and environmental hygiene practices to locally-elected water user committees, and providing these committees with ongoing technical support.
  • WHA is also well underway with the first ever comprehensive, systematic effort to map and study all of Gulu's groundwater sources, including testing for bacteriological contamination, conducting sanitary risk inspections, and assessing water source governance structures and practices.
