When water is falling from the sky, you might not need to drill into the ground.

A UWP rainwater collection system consists of a 10,000-liter polyethylene tank that’s placed on a cement base and connected to a building’s metal roof through a gutter system. As rainwater is harvested, people can collect it from the nearby tap stand we install, then purify it using the four hollow fiber membrane water filters we include with each of our rainwater collection systems. 
IMPACT: Clean water for 100-500 people

LIFESPAN: 20+ years

COST: $3,600 USD 

All construction materials are sourced in Uganda and installed by our Ugandan crew. Our RCS project cost is turnkey, meaning we’ll get the job done no matter what and never ask you for more.
