Access to clean and safe drinking water is a driving force for sustainable development and the eradication of poverty and hunger. Lango sub region has low water coverage. Surface water coverage in the region is not safe and sufficient for human consumption and dries up during dry season. Percentage of households that fetch unprotected and unsafe water is still high. Women and girls spend long time travelling long distances fetching water because of their gender role in the sub region.  Provision of clean and safe drinking water by drilling boreholes, building bath shelters, toilets in resettlement areas, schools and in the communities hosting for refugees plus hygiene training are some of the interventions PUSH Uganda will engage on.
