Our Story

A local solution to Africa’s lack of access to safe and clean drinking water

SPOUTS was founded in 2011 to provide Ugandans with an affordable, locally-made ceramic water filter to reduce the burden of preventable water-borne diseases. Since 2011, we have increased our production capacity, expanded into a new country and added new products to our offering, helping to expand the environmental and social benefits our customers need.
