SAFE DRINKING WATER IS A HUMAN RIGHT. WE ARE WORKING ON CREATING SAFE DRINKING WATER SOLUTIONS FOR EVERY SCHOOL IN AFRICA.
Before Impact Water launched in Uganda, boiling was often the only tool schools had to make drinking water safe for their students. Schools struggled with the cost of firewood as well as the hours lost to the chore of boiling water. Affordable water purification strategies were largely absent in the market, which inspired Impact Water to innovate a new approach.
We installed our first water purification system in Uganda in 2013. We now aim to make universal coverage of safe drinking water systems a reality in schools across Africa.
Please note, the numbers represented in this video are lower than our current numbers. To date, we have installed systems in almost 16,000 schools, bringing safe drinking water to over 6.4 million students
Impact Water is led by a dedicated global team, based in the U.S., and multinational teams in its 3 country offices in Uganda, Kenya and Nigeria. We’re entrepreneurs, development practitioners, social scientists, marketeers, and project managers by training, and we’re deeply committed to what we do.
