Sustainable water for Kiyaji, Uganda

Sustainable water for Kiyaji, Uganda

Kiyaji Village is located in Kasawo Town council, Mukono district. This is approximately 70km to the north of Kampala city.

Like thousands of other remote villages in Sub Saharan Africa they lack the basic necessity of clean water.  When our Village Drill Team from  SUUBI Community Projects approached them about a partnership to bring clean water to their community they jumped at the chance.

Now plans are being made to drill a 40 meter well for this community.  Having clean water nearby will mean that women and girls will no longer need to spend hours each day fetching water from a contaminated stream more than 2 kilometers away.  It will also mean less sickness and more opportunity to improve their economic situation.

By taking advantage of a small WHOlives grant and our Community Funded Well Program this village will be able to have access to clean water now, and pay for their new well over the next 10 months.  They can even use the proceeds they receive from selling their excess water to make the payments on their loan.  This sustainable model is helping to break the cycle of hopelessness and dependency found all over the developing world.  By supporting this project you are supporting real sustainability and real change for real people.
