Kasana Village is a rural and remote community located in Kasawo Subcounty, Mukono district. The village has a population of close to 1000 people, in 170 households. The village also has a school with more than 150 children.
Most of the people in this village are peasants, actively engaged in small scale farming especially growing food crops.
The community currently accesses water from surface ponds located in swamps. This water is dirty and contaminated. The nearest source of water is a community borehole in a neighboring village, more than 3kms away.
while Suubi drillers were working at another community funded well, local leaders approached the drillers and asked the possibility of getting a well for their community. This started an engagement, and the community was later trained about the Community Funded Well Program.
They have since shown interest and commitment to participate in the program.
A site visit has been made and an appropriate site identified for drilling.
The WHOlives Community Funded Loan program is brining clean water to many villages throughout Africa. This sustainable model allows us to reach more communities in need.
