We have completed a substantial water project in Kogaja and successfully drilled a borehole on the Africompassion site. The drilling rig struck an abundant source of water at 432 feet.
We have installed two 5,000 liter water tanks on a tower, an electric submersible pump and a water station with four faucets to provide clean water for 1,000 villagers.
This is a remarkable, life changing project for these good people.
In the future we hope to provide portable water filters to neighboring villages to provide drinking water in the short term and to complete additional water wells and similar water projects.
Clean Water and Sanitation
There is no clean water in the Ikoma ward where Kogaja is located. Prior to the Africompassion water project, the villagers got water from ponds, mudholes and streams that are contaminated with human and animal feces.
Africompassion is implementing a comprehensive WASH education program to teach villagers proper sanitation and hygiene to prevent disease.
Additionally, Africompassion is providing advanced household water filters to allow villagers to have clean water.

Clean Water Changes Lives
Without clean water, people get sick frequently with parasites and sicknesses like typhoid, cholera, and dysentery.
The burden of carrying water from water sources which are usually significant distances from homes often falls on women, girls and children as the men are working in the fields. The time lost for them interferes with their education and ability to work. Sicknesses prevent people from working and providing for themselves.
Providing clean water is the first step in enabling people to escape poverty. Please help us to provide clean water to these children and villagers.
