Our focus

Our focus is on eliminating Water borne diseases by providing plenty of safe water to both institutions
and households in a way that preserves our environment

Our Water

Water provided by Tusafishe has been tested and conforms to international standards of drinking water. Our water is naturally treated.

The technology

Our system is built arround biological processes, leaving the water natural and safe for human consumption.

On Environment

The technology is an alternative to common methods of water purification in Uganda, it eliminates the use of solid fuel for boiling water, encourages planting of trees, eliminates carbon emitions and deforestation that are associated with boiling water

Uganda and water borne diseases 2017

Approximately 23,000 Ugandans, including 19,700 children under 5years, die each year from diarrhea alone, approximately $1.1million is lost each year due to productivity losses while sick or accessing healthcare, $147 million due to Premature Death, $21 million spent on Health Care and US$8.1 million in Access Time. (Water and Sanitation Project (WSP) report on economic impact of poor sanitation in Africa).

Water Safety

35% of those who have access to safe water are not able to maintain a safe water chain from the source up to the point of use at the household level (Water and Environment Sector Performance Report 2016- Uganda ministry of water and environment)

Alternative water treatment methods

The alternative methods used in water treatment fall short in many aspects, they are dangerous to the environment, do not provide enough water for communities that live together in large numbers like schools and are costly for the 34.6% of Ugandans who live on less than $1.90 a day.

Facts

Since july 2017 we have provided clean water to over 30,000 people

Our Work

We construct for schools and large communities high capacity filters of upto 10,000 litres a day, we train communities on the technology and oversee when they construct their own filters using
locally available materials.
