Ngarama Village in Uganda wants a Community Funded Well

Ngarama Village in Uganda wants a Community Funded Well

Ngarama is a Village in Isingiro District, Western Uganda at the border with Tanzania. This community is mainly made up of refugees from Tanzania and Rwanda who have found a home in Uganda. The villagers are mainly cattle keepers and also farmers growing mainly bananas.

Generally, Isingiro district is water strained. It’s a mountainous area, and very remote with poor roads and accessibility, which has made many drilling projects difficult.  This is why they want to hire a Village Drill crew to come and drill a well for them.  Our Village Drill can go places a big rig truck simply cannot go. 

Many families depend on water collected from their small roofs during rainy season, but for the biggest part of their year, they have to walk an average of 4km to collect water from streams located in the valleys. They share these water sources with their animals.

The project will aim to drill a borehole at St.Benedict Vocational Secondary school, a public institution that was founded by the Catholic Church. The borehole will help this school that has a population of 260 children and the surrounding community of about 100 households.

This beautiful community needs a sponsor to provide the needed funds for WHOlives to drill the borehole and finish the well.  They have agreed to pay back the community funded loan over the next year which will allow us to put the funds back in use for another project.  This truly sustainable model is making a real difference in remote, impoverished communities.
