IAU and Japanese Embassy staff carry out monitoring of the Japanese Grant Rain Water Harvesting Project in Nyarusiza Sub County, Kisoro District

InterAid Uganda,  Nyarusiza, Kisoro district

InterAid Uganda (IAU) signed a contract grant from the Japanese Embassy on 20th January 2012 for a rain water harvesting project in Nyarusiza Sub County worth US$ 96,546 (Estimated Ug Shs 224 million) . The project is to supply 36 rain water harvesting tanks to 5 primary schools (Kabindi Mixed, Gitenderi, Gasovu, Rurembwe and Kabuhungiro), 8 communities (Rukere, Mwanjari, Kabaya, Musasa, Karambi, Bunama, Gasovu, and Gishita), 3 community churches (Kigango Church, Gasovu Protestant and Kukagote) and 1 health centre (Gasovu HC II).

On 12th September, IAU and Staff from the Japanese Embassy carried out a monitoring trip to assess the completion level of the project. Five sites (Gitenderi Primary School, Rurembwe Primary School, Musasa community, Gasovu Health Centre, Bunama community site and Kabaya community) were visited during the visit. The findings show that all tanks have been fixed and water is already being used for various activities that include cleaning pit latrines and classrooms in schools, domestic use and general purpose uses. The water tanks have been of great benefit during the recent dry seasons whereby the community and schools were able to use the water without trekking long distances to fetch water. The water source committees have been formed and in place managing the water tanks. On some water tanks the schools have even built extra protection to ensure that the water tank is not damaged; other community members have plans to build fences of barbed wires in order to protect the tanks, all signs of sustainability of the water tanks.
