SPOUTS has empowered households to take ownership over their drinking water solutions through our Direct Sales “D2C” Program. Our staff lead group presentations in villages with the support of local leaders, so that households have the option of buying a filter during the presentation through our financing program, which allows them to pay for the filter in installments.


Through our loyal partners and our Filters for Schools Program, SPOUTS has installed filters in over 1,000 schools throughout Uganda, providing over 300,000 students with safe water. Now, students have one less thing to worry about and can focus on their studies.

Filters for Schools Program

In partnership with UNHCR and implementing partners, we have installed over 3,000 filters in refugee settlements, both at the household and institutional level. Families from neighboring countries now have one less thing to worry about as they arrive in Uganda to make a new life for themselves.
