Water Harvesting Tanks

This project was established in 2019, after compiling house data in all households and water scarcity was seen as the biggest challenge by women and children could not go to school and even those going to school would go with Jerri cans for about 2.5kms to get water.

In Buhoma town council, 64% of people in rural areas do not have access to safe water. Majority of these are in hilly areas as the name of the area described as mountainous. The BMCDA, Donors and numerous Non- Government Organizations (NGOs) have supported the construction of improved water supply facilities. However, water supply is still a challenge. Water shortage in rural areas is mainly attributed to non-functionality of water sources.

It is noted that 17% of the sources are low yielding or dry due to decreasing water level and quantity. This has created a need for promotion of appropriate technologies and initiatives, such as Rain Water Harvesting (RWH), as an alternative water shortage solution.
