Gomba is a remote part of central Uganda. It is a place where trees line the roads, community members are as close as family, the food is good and healthy and school is a priority.
In Gomba most people don't have access to clean water. The sources of water are far from the community and women and children usually have to walk for 5 kilometers or more to collect it. And, when they arrive a goat or cow might be there sharing the sought after water.
Often households and schools use the water without treating it.
As a result, about 50 children below the age of five die each month from diarrhea, typhoid and dysentery.
Uganda Women's Water Initiative saw this problem and with a grant from Global GreenGrants Fund, they started a project that opened up new access to clean water.
