Impact

The Ugandan Safe Water Project in Lango has grown to become the world’s first carbon project to be successfully certified under the Gold Standard’s Gender Equality Framework within its Gold Standard for the Global Goals.

The project has successfully demonstrated that it is being run in a gender-sensitive way and that it delivers positive impacts to women. Communities are supported with access to safe water through the rehabilitation of hand-powered boreholes. The communities live in remote rural areas with minimal infrastructure and limited access to safe water.
