Kabale extra collecting jars
Follow-up 2013




Water collecting jars

Location: Kabale - Uganda

Project leadtime: October – December 30th 2013

Requestor: Tumwesigye Leonard on behalf of Children Rescue Voluntary Organisation

Description of the project:

The proposal is a water project. Water in life is an important necessity for meaningful and health of our children and their communities. Many children don’t get clean water and the distance is far to water sources.


  • To reduce the burden of children who walk long distances for water
  • To reduce diseases due to dirty water
  • To reduce the risks children undergo while walking for water after school


  • All homes of vulnerable children under CRVO and their households
  • Homes of children who’s guardians are chronically ill


The budget for 40 water jars will be 23.598.000 Uganda Shillings. Some empty jerry cans to carry water, wheel barrow and spades have been included as necessities.


  • Long distance for water to use
  • Few experienced personnel to construct water jars leading to increasing on labour costs.
