We Build Wells
We Change Lives in an Entire Village, Forever
Could we do without hot and cold running water directly to our kitchens and bathrooms? Or without pure water for drinking? What if your only water source was a mud hole? That is how many families obtain their only source of water.

We Give Away Bicycles
Changing A Life, One Person at a Time
In rural western Uganda, bordering Congo, the general population walks. People travel by foot over hard dirt or badly damaged paved roads to go to the hospital, market places, a water source, and places of employment. A bicycle adds more than basic transportation. Bicycles carry water and firewood. They can be fitted with carriers for package, seating for several children, and can be fitted to carry almost as much cargo as small pickup truck.
We provide new bicycles to those who will benefit in Western Uganda.
The Clean Water Organization differs from the many other U.S. NGO’s, in that rather than collecting, repairing, storing, and shipping bikes from the United States to Africa, we use local contacts to receive bikes imported from China or India with much lower shipping costs and without the profit which would be taken by importing bicycles to the U.S., and then trans-shipping them to Uganda. As a small NGO purchasing locally in Uganda, we are able to get much more efficiency out of each dollar contributed, with over 98 cents of each dollar going to bike purchases, with no middle men profits, shipping, parts, repair labor, or storage costs.
