Summary: EATBETA to Construct Water Wells in Ugandan Rural Communities


Access to clean water is a big challenge in most Ugandan rural communities, so helping to overcome this challenge is now a fundamental part of EATBETA's mission. During the summer of 2018, EATBETA began promoting and sponsoring hand-dug water wells to make clean water readily available to Ugandan rural communities. And since the beginning of 2019, EATBETA has constructed four water-wells at four villages in Uganda, namely: Kiteezi village in the central, Okaliba village in the north, Butimbwa and Naibowa villages in the eastern region of Uganda. A fifth water well (sponsored by HEB Rotary Club) is under construction at Zirobwe village in central Uganda.

Our goal for this year is to construct ten water wells in the villages where EATBETA carries out its training and outreach programs in Uganda. We have realized that EATBETA's programs are much successful in those rural communities where we establish water wells. In constructing a water well, the local people are also engaged in the process; they are trained and involved in the digging of the water well hole. Then EATBETA use funds raised through donations to build the water well and to purchase materials which the local people cannot afford such as cement, hand pumps, water tanks, etc. While using such a novel strategy, a water well can be be completed at a reasonable cost of $1,500 per water well. It would cost much more than $1,500 per water well if the local people were not involved in the construction process.
