It’s alarming that over 1.5 million people die annually from diseases caused by unsafe water, inadequate sanitation and poor hygiene habits. Majority of these are young people in developing countries like Uganda.
Byidi through its Water and sanitation programmes provides educative awareness on hygiene and provides intervention alternatives for safe water in form of spring water wells and boreholes. Byidi works with communities to find the best ways to protect the spring wells and access opportunities of constructing boreholes for communities. We engage the different households using the water sources to form their own management committees to look after the water sources within their villages.
