WATSAN is a UK charity dedicated to the support of a water and sanitation programme in South West Uganda. Thanks to WATSAN’s work, people in rural communities have access to life-saving clean water and hygienic toilet facilities.
Our programme is managed by the Anglican Dioceses of North Kigezi and Kinkiizi. Our Ugandan arm is known as NKKD WATSAN. The project contributes directly to the achievement of the UN water and sanitation Sustainable Development Goals in the Ugandan Districts of Rukungiri and Kanungu.
We invite you to lend a hand to this important work, which directly benefits some of the poorest communities in the world.

Many of our supporters will know that for many years WATSAN has enjoyed a partnership with Tearfund, who have provided approximately one third of our total funding. This arrangement was underpinned by a Memorandum of Understanding between Tearfund and our partners in Uganda, NKKD WATSAN (NKKD).
On 3rd July Simon completed the Maratona Dles Dolomites in aid of WATSAN, completing 138km and six ascents in 8 hours and 53 minutes.
Thanks to WATSAN’s latest intervention, community members at a primary school, child development centre and church are better equipped with facilities and knowledge about how to take care of their health.
WATSAN’s trustees were delighted to welcome 30 of their valued supporters to afternoon tea, hosted by our Patron Bishop Andrew Watson at his residence in Guildford.
As we shared earlier in the year, following the success of our dispersed Walks for Water during the pandemic, we are encouraging our supporters to organise sponsored walks local to them to raise funds for WATSAN.
