YWP Uganda Chapter




Who We Are!!

The Young Water Professionals – Uganda chapter is a forum that was established to bring together Uganda professionals and students below the age of 35 years with the main aim of pooling competences in order to provide unified approaches towards solving the challenges faced by the water sector in the region.

The YWP is currently established in Uganda, with fully fledged support from National Water & Sewerage Corporation (NWSC) as the hosting institution. National Water and Sewerage Corporation, Uganda – is a public utility that is 100% owned by government of Uganda and provides water and sewerage services in urban centers across the country on a commercial and financially viable basis. NWSC is also a Governing member of IWA and an active member of AfWA. As at August 2015, the Corporation operated within 135 urban centers in the country with an estimated population of over 7 million people. The number of towns is envisaged to grow to at least 140 towns by year 2018.

Deputy Publicity Secretary

Brian Abong is a self-defined experimental Digital Artist. In this capacity, he has been behind the lens, code and more as a concept and content creator. Currently employed at National Water & Sewerage Corporation (NWSC) as the Website officer, he alongside a team have been responsible for NWSC’s online image and reputation. Being a millennial, he also inherited a world that is on its knees, with pollution, and waterborne diseases at record levels.

Young Water Professionals is one such great vehicle to spread this message.
