THE NEED: Kanabulemu community located in Kyebe sub county, Kakuuto County, Rakai District, Southern Uganda has a generous natural supply of water. However, its terrain makes this water inaccessible and unsafe. The population of approximately 3500 people does not have access to clean water. The communities served include St. Simon Nazareth primary school, Christian mission and the Health centre-Nazareth HC III. There is need to improve the water supply systems to meet the urgent need of the community that includes school going children, the parishioners and the patients.

This project has been developed aimed at increasing access to safe water for the population of 3500 people in Kanabulemu community so as to improve the general wellbeing of the community. This will be achieved through improving the water yield capacity of the existing source, motorizing the water pumping system and increasing water storage capacity. As gravity water flow system will be used from the main storage tank at the pump station.

The strategy aims at reducing the problems caused by inadequate supply of water in Kanabulemu community which include water bone diseases like diarrhea, scabies, trachoma and dysentery and consequently contribute to the wellbeing of the community.

Duration: Effective implementation of this project will require approximately 3 months to carry out the survey, bore hole drilling, plumbing, installation and test pumping from receipt of the funding.

Cost: Kanabulemu community therefore requests for US$ 62,891.6 to accomplish the project. The community has committed a motorized borehole valued at US$ 7,000
