Community Funded well in WABIKOKOMA, Uganda

Community Funded well in WABIKOKOMA, Uganda

Wabikokoma Village is located in Nagallama Ward A, Nakifuma Town Council, Mukono District Uganda. The village has 304 households. 

People in this village have to walk more than 2km to collect dirty water from surface ponds in nearby swamps. The community members face many challenges especially illnesses related to the continued use of dirty water.

In August 2020, the community members approached Suubi Community Projects Uganda with a request/proposal for construction of a borehole in the area so that people can access clean water. Unfortunately this proposal wasn’t realized since Suubi had a long list of villages with a similar challenge, and funding was limited.

In November 2021, when the community of Wabikokoma learned about the Community Funded Well Program sponsored by WHOlives, they approached the Village Drill crew and expressed their interest.

They have agreed and committed to pay 500,000UGX( approx. $140) per month for 1 year.  

We are excited to be partnering with this community  to help them have access to clean water for the very first time.   Because of this project women and girls will no longer need to walk almost 2 miles to fetch dirty water from a contaminated swamp.

Our community funded loan program is having a huge impact as remote, impoverished communities learn how to band together to create their own water system.

Please consider supporting us in our efforts to help this village help themselves.
