water. sanitation. hygiene.

busogatrust is a charity that constructs and rehabilitates wells, boreholes, latrines & washrooms in the Busoga Region & Luwero District of Uganda.

Working with local communities, we get the spades in and do the work on the ground, finding local solutions to local problems. We also run hygiene and sanitation trainings and menstrual hygiene management workshops for women and girls.

In 2020 - 2021, we impacted over 212,000 people with the transformational benefits of clean water and good hygiene and sanitation. We rehabilitated 229 non-functional boreholes, as part of our major borehole rehabilitation programme with communities benefitting not only from clean safe water, but from our accompanying hygiene and sanitation training and Covid-19 resources. 

 

Our water projects have been changing lives in Uganda since 1983.

“My name is Peace Nakiwaala, I am 8 years old. When boys see me riding a bicycle to fetch  water, they keep disturbing me, but I am used to it. I used to fear them alot, my mother even stopped me from going to the well to fetch water because she was scared, they may rape me. Now that the Kilangira borehole has been rehabilitated, it is on the main road, so it is easy to access. I can now usually ride the bicycle with my little brother without fearing anything. I am so happy because I can now help my mother with collecting water from the borehole. We can now have access to safe and clean water, Thank you!”
