Access to Clean Water in Uganda
Access to clean water is limited in the rural Buyende district of Uganda. To take full advantage of the two rainy seasons, Revy has invested in a large filtering rainwater collection tank, making access to clean water possible without a tiring journey on foot.
Your contribution to this fund supports ongoing and future clean-water projects in the region.

In Uganda, 41% of people live in poverty, and almost half of Uganda’s population is under the age of 15, representing one of the youngest populations in the world. Uganda also hosts the largest refugee population in Africa—more than one million refugees have fled their home countries to seek asylum in Uganda. Over the next decade, agricultural development will be a main priority to help improve outcomes for low-income families. Agriculture will also be an increasingly important industry for youth and refugees to find viable opportunities to earn sustainable livelihoods for themselves.
