The Water Tanks
Water and Sanitiation - The Water Wealth Driving Health project is the installation and provision of water tanks and distribution of clothes to communities.
Water projects are based around the delivery of three types of initiatives:
Since 2014, 80 water tanks and water filters have been installed over an extensive area. Water tanks and water filters have been installed across Nteko Ridge, from Nkuringo to Kabaya, Suma, Chicomo and Rugandu villages as well as in Rubuguri, Kisoro, Lake Mutanda areas and Wakiso district.
These has been a popular and transformational project for both locals and sponsors, since these installations provide a great opportunity for the community and sponsors to work together to install the tanks. It's the job of the children to fetch the water. A three hour round trip to the stream in the valley, twice a day has now been replaced, with more time spent at school, improving their education and providing better choices in their lives.
The project manager decides upon the location of the water tanks and the community then gets involved in installing the tanks. The tanks are transported by truck and on foot to the location. Concrete is mixed, bricks are laid, the tanks are placed and to finish off the gutters are positioned to direct the water flow from the rooves of buildings.
The Community Projects are managed by Evarist Muhumuza.
