Impact

Implementer: Uganda Women's Water Initiative

UWWI is a local chapter of the Global Women's Water Initiative. UWWI was formed by a GWWI Fellow and expert technician to create a local presence in Uganda to ensure that continued WASH trainings are offered to grassroots women's groups all over Uganda. GWWI has been training the UWWI leaders - Hajra Mukasa (UWWI Director, GWWI Fellow of 2011 and Master's Candidate in Public Health at Makarere University) and Godliver Businge (expert WASH technician) to launch their own projects in Gomba District. Hajra and Godliver have been managing, mentoring and training 10 women's organizations in Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda for the last 2 years. Ultimately, our goal is to have UWWI be an integral PWX member!
