Water Projects

We provide equal access to WASH in rural communities and deprived urban areas in Uganda.

We tackle overlapping inequalities relating to WASH, gender, health, education and the environment.  

We work with partners the Ichupa Upcycle Project to build water tanks made from ‘ecobricks’ – waste plastic bottles. 

What we do

Skills and Education

We run classes and workshops in schools, women’s groups and community centres. 

We teach practical skills such as making reusable sanitary pads and liquid soap, and open conversations about WASH and climate change. 

We train young leaders to become local water ambassadors and set up WASH committees to support them.

About us

Equal Aqua was founded in 2020 by a group of volunteers from Uganda and the UK, who share a passion for youth-led development and WASH equality.

Seeing first-hand the challenges with water that people in Uganda face every day, they were inspired to start an international, yet fundamentally grassroots organisation, that could make a real difference.
