Rural Water & Sanitation Program

Improving access to Safe and clean water

Water is needed by all living things to survive. Most rural areas in Rwenzori region and Uganda in general don’t have access to clean and safe water. As our objective we are working towards helping these areas access safe water with support from our partners and in line with the SDG6.

Harugongo Trading center water well

In the drive to help local communities get access to clean and safe water the foundation with funding from our partners managed to construct a spring well in Harugongo trading centre village. This village is located 12 km north of  Fort portal town in Burahya county Kabarole District with a population of over 1000 people all benefiting from this well. This water well also serves water to a government aided school of Harugongo Primary school which has a population of over 2000 pupils. Records from the locals the village had spent over 7 years without a well given the one they had broken.

Mugamba Water Well

Mugamba is a village located 15 km north of fort portal town in Burahya County with a population of over 800 people living in almost 200 homes. This village had one well which was constructed in 2001 and broke in 2009. So for over 8 years the village had no protected water well and people were collecting water from a dirty source and sharing the same source with animals which is a great risk to people health. With funding from our Partner  we have managed to put a protected well which provides safe and clean water to the residents.
