Project Description

Country: Uganda

Location: Nakaseke District

Total Budget: $2,000

Area of Focus: Water, sanitation and hygiene

Activity Type: Water: Supply/Access

Summary: To construct a water well in a Ugandan rural community of Nakaseke District


In addition to providing training to rural farmers, EATBETA is involved in facilitating the construction of hand-dug water wells in Ugandan rural communities. Most rural communities in Uganda have a serious shortage of clean water; thus, our goal is to construct hand-dug water wells, particularly, in the villages where EATBETA carries out training and outreach programs. Our target this year is to construct 10 water wells in Nakaseke district, Uganda.

EATBETA's programs are much more successful in rural communities where we establish water wells. In constructing a hand-dug water well, the villagers are involved in the process; either by digging the hole themselves or by providing local materials, such as bricks or sand, needed in the construction of the well. Then EATBETA uses funds raised through donations, to build the water well and to purchase materials which the villagers cannot afford-such as cement, hand pumps, water tanks, pipes, etc. Construction of the water well

takes up to two weeks.


Addendum to Project Description (added after the project was signed)

11-05-2020 This is to inform you that the community receiving the water is now Fort Portal district not Nakaseke district, because Nakaseke District already received a water well. Kindly make that change. The construction of the water well in Fort Portal district is set to begin in about a week.
