Achievements

  1. WHA has directly helped 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.

  2. WHA has conducted the first ever comprehensive effort to GPS map, conduct water quality testing, conduct risk of contamination assessment, and evaluate the governance and management of every single groundwater source in Gulu.

  3. WHA is providing data and analytical support to assist Uganda’s National Water & Sewerage Corporation (NWSC) in selection of 15 contaminated and/or nonfunctional water sources (serving an estimated 7,500 people) in Gulu for rehabilitation and support in operation and maintenance in 2019.
