Shared Rainwater Harvesting in Uganda

Problem

The people of Ddegeya, Uganda depend on contaminated sources for water and spend hours each day collecting water.

Innovation

Rainwater harvesting systems are typically designed at household- or community-scale. This novel system combines the best of both to provide an accessible, affordable system that residents have ownership of. The tank is located at a central household and shared among 5 or 6 other households. All of the houses share responsibility for tank maintenance.
