Description of the project:

This project will improve the access to safe and clean water for domestic use and livestock, for the residents of 6 villages in the Muleba district : Kiyebe, Rugando, Nkahama, Rubao, Nshambya, Ibare. The originally 34 wells were constructed in 2002 but as no handover and information on well maintenance was provided, by now only 2 of them are still operational. The project will be executed in 2 phases where in the 1st phase 1 well per village will be replenished and in the 2nd phase all remaining wells.


  • Rehabilitate & refurbish 14 hand dug wells in 6 villages
  • Train 24 men well maintenance and repair mechanics 
  • Promote replication of the experience in other wards
  • Promote hygiene and sanitation training in 6 villages.

Follow-up of the project

Date:                          December 3rd 2020

General status:

The project was started immediately after receiving the funds. Preparation meetings with all stakeholders were held and the first 6 pumps were purchased. The pumps are installed by now; 1
on a deep well and 5 on shallow wells, in the villages Kiyebe, Rubao, Nyamilanda, Kabanga, Kitenga and Kiteme.

The rehabilitation of these 6 water wells help communities to have access to safe drinking water, reduced time spent to go in search of water (reducing lateness at school) and reduction of diseases reported cases.

Financial status:

The received funds are fully used, in line with the agreed detailed budget for this phase.


  • As 1 of the pumps is placed on a deep well, costs for pipes etc. were higher than expected
  • Heavy rains made the transport of needed goods very difficult and prevented some people to join the project, as they had to focus on their own farm/garden.
