The challenge

Over 440 children die every week from waterborne diseases in Uganda, as they don’t have access to clean water at home or school. For the children of Motherland Academy in Kampala, falling sick with diarrhea or typhoid from contaminated water was a regular occurrence. It meant that missing school was just part of everyday life.

The innovation

Impact Water aims to change this reality through their simple UV-based water purification systems. The social business sells, installs and maintains the environmentally-friendly systems to schools on low cost, multi-year credit terms. The installation of every filter also offsets CO2 emissions as schools avoid burning firewood to boil water.

The impact

Impact Water already serves over 1,700 schools in Uganda and provides clean drinking water to more than 940,000 children. The model is so successful they are expanding to Kenya & Nigeria, reaching another 200,000 children.
