INTERAID UGANDA AND JAPANESE EMBASSY COMMISSION WATER PROJECT IN NYARUSIZA, KISORO DISTRICT

InterAid Uganda, Nyarusiza Sub-county, Kisoro District, 16th October 2012

In early January this year, the Japanese Government through the grant assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects extended a grant of US $ 96,546 dollars (about 224 million shillings) to InterAid Uganda to install 36 Rain water harvesting tanks in 8 communities ie Rukere, Mwanjari, Kabaya, Musasa, Karambi, Bunama, Gasovu and Gishita. Each of these communities received 2, 10,000 litres tanks. Two tanks were installed at Gasovu Health Centre in Gasovu Parish. The project also provided water tanks to the following primary schools; Kabindi Primary School, Gitender P/S, Rurembwe P/S, Gasovu P/S, Mabungo P/S and Kabuhungiro P/S.

The Church communities of Gasovu COU, Kigango and Kukagote also received one tank each. Present during this function were His Excellency the Ambassador of Japan in Uganda, who handed over the tanks to the beneficiaries, the Executive Director of InterAid Uganda, LC V Chairperson, RDC, Kisoro District, OC Police Station, who represented regional police commander, District Councillors, Officials from the District water department, LC III Chairperson, Nyarusiza Subcounty, beneficiaries of the water tanks among others. Speaking during the function, the Executive Director of InterAid Uganda, Madam Scholastica Nasinyama on her behalf and that of the Board, Management and Staff of InterAid Uganda, thanked the people of Japan for the project that will benefit especially the school children and women in the sub county. Nyarusiza sub-county has no any other source of water except from the heaven and the project will significantly contribute towards access to water. “We are aware that the need for water tanks is still very high in the sub-county and some communities still demand for tanks. Even those who got still continue asking for more. Our wish was to have at least a water tank for 10 household but the budget could not allow. It remains our dream to continue supporting the sub county and the District in development towards eradication of poverty while serving the most vulnerable and disadvantaged”, said the Executive Director. She also thanked the contractors who did a good job and also the support from the sub-county leadership especially the LCIII Chairperson who was on ground coordinating and giving support during project implementation. InterAid Uganda has been in the district in the areas of HIV/AIDS and water. InterAid supported the district in the construction of the Gasheregenyi gravity scheme in Gasheregenyi village. Under the Global fund project, InterAid Uganda also supported Mutolerere Hospital Community Based Health Project Orphans Program and Gisorora Twubake in Gisorora to train artisans. This was an HIV/AIDS grant which was successfully utilised. The executive director assured the people of Kisoro district of continued support towards HIV/AIDS projects: “InterAid will continue to seek funds to support HIV/AIDS projects in the district since we noted that the district has been marginalised in the areas on HIV and AIDS funding and has extremely few NGOs involved in HIV and AIDS prevention”

In her concluding remarks, the Executive Director, InterAid Uganda requested His Excellency the Ambassador to send sincere appreciation despite the problems of Tsunami that affected the people of Japan for their continued support to the developing world, Uganda in particular and Nyarusiza specifically. She also requested the Japanese Emabssy to fund more such projects having realized the problems of water. “We hope that the embassy having seen the problems of water in Nyarusiza, will always answer our call when we knock on the door looking for more funding to reach other communities that have not benefited from this phase. Thank you for coming to bless the occasion and wish you a safe journey home”. said the Executive Director
