Parceiros Swarovski Waterschool:
Bwindi Mgahinga Conservation Trust e defensores da conservação da água e do meio ambiente

A Swarovski Waterschool Uganda começou em 2009 em torno do Parque Nacional Impenetrável de Bwindi, no distrito de Kanungu , no sudoeste de Uganda. Em colaboração com o Bwindi Mgahinga Conservation Trust, o projeto foi projetado para trabalhar com estudantes e famílias para melhorar o acesso à água potável e a disponibilidade de instalações de saneamento. Também empregou uma abordagem participativa destinada a melhorar o conhecimento e promover mudanças comportamentais em direção ao uso sustentável da água para todos os beneficiários.

In a region where environmental changes can make access to clean water particularly scarce, Swarovski Waterschool Uganda has commissioned the Banyara Gravity Flow Scheme, and supplied rainwater tanks and sanitary facilities for all schools in the program. Through the participation in Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) Clubs, students learn about sustainable water and effective sanitation practices. Swarovski Waterschool was also able to open a water supply system for 20 villages in the region and 20 water-boiling facilities at schools, as well as, construct of 40 ventilated, improved pit latrines for better sanitation and hygiene.
In 2015, Swarovski Waterschool Uganda teamed up with Advocates for Water Environment Conservation, to reach out to more schools and communities in a new region around Queen Elizabeth Park in an ever-expanding initiative.
