Domestic rainwater harvesting in Uganda is considered a self supply approach. Women groups from different districts in Uganda have been engaged in promotion of rain water harvesting through building their capacity to construct, operate, maintain and finance the systems. This age old approach is now being sought after as a solution to provide supplementary and sometimes primary water sources for households in Uganda. In rural Uganda today, rainwater harvesting is becoming more relevant in providing water for households as it provides a water source that is convenient. This case points out the efforts of Uganda Rain water Harvesting association in empowering women groups to improve access to safe water through Rain Water Harvesting and thereby accelerating self supply.
