SAVE LIVES OF PEOPLE NEAR THE WELLS IN KASESE

by KITABU INTEGRATED DEVELOPMENT ASSOCIATION (KIDA)

Summary

The project will build four tanks to trap water on the wells which will lead to constant water supply to over six villages depending on the wells with a population of over 700,000 people. Each tank will have over 3 outlet taps such that people fetch without over lining and wasting time this will lead to improved standards of living because women were spending time on fetching water for around 8-10 hours lining for a single jerrycan to get full.

Challenge

The community is experiencing challenges of lack of water in that there are five wells that over 700,000 families in the five villages depend and these well give drop by drop it takes like 3 hours to have a single jerrycan full then this takes 8 to 10 hours for a person to have water fetched this has forced many people more especially the women to always wake at 2 am at night to go to the wells to fetch water which has lead to rape, hunger and violence cases and other water diseases.

Solution

By constructing four capital cemented tanks on these wells, water will be trapped to the tanks and there will easy access to water because no single will be wasted and so doing water will readily the over populated villages, collecting water to the tanks will lead to clean water, each tank will have about four outlets in to reduce on the over lining for water that is existing. water will trap such that by the night people will know that is not being wasted on ground it is going to tanks

Long-Term Impact

We will have over 700,000 people served with clean and constant water, the problem of over waiting for water for around 8 hours will be reduced to maximally 1 hour and the problem of women violence and rape case will totally reduce in the community, and hunger will be reduced because many people had less time for cultivation and home resorted to camping for water and leave cultivation for water and other water born diseases will be controlled because of clean water tapped to the tanks.
