Divine Waters Uganda has been a partner with Ryan’s Well since 2003. The well-established team at Divine are very experienced in all of the work that’s involved in organizing a self-sustainable community. From the beginning of every project, communities are involved in all aspects of planning and implementation in order to facilitate ownership of the water project.

This project will provide approximately 5,400 people with access to potable water.
