PROPOSED REHAB PROJECT

The proposed Indangalasia primary school water project rehab is a school compromising of pupils and teachers from Koyonzo location.

The school owns a hand dug well that was dug by the parents associations. The well was functional until 2007 when it broke down. Due to lack knowledge, the school water committee dumped the project and was further vandalized by unknown people. Since then, the school pupils have been suffering going back to the stream looking for water. Due to this, the school together with its management committee approached BWP to assist them rehabilitate the well so as to enable them access clean and safe water.

CURRENT WATER SOURCE.

 The Indangalasia primary school and the whole community access water from a stream. The stream dries up during the dry season. The stream is not protected hence contaminated. The turbidity value measures 80.

POPULATION

The School is a mixed day with an enrollment of 750 pupils, 17teachers and 4 non- teaching staff. The community a round records 65 households with an average of 7 people per house.

SANITATION AND HYGIENE

There are 10 pit latrines that are washed 2 times a week, clothes lines are not available for the community to hung their clothes on. Hand washing points and detergent soap is not available outside some of the toilets. There is compost pit where liters are burned from.

PROJECT BENEFICIARIES

The project will benefit the pupils of this School and community members.

Project Type

Well rehabilitation is one of the most cost effective ways to bring clean, safe water to a community.  Sometimes it involves fixing a broken hand pump, other times it means sealing a hand dug well to prevent it from being contaminated.  These repairs, and often time total replacements, coupled with sanitation and hygiene training make a huge impact in communities.
