Village Notes
Kisiro village is very big and comprised of about 350-400 homes. However the real pressing need for this community is water. The only water source available is a low yield borehole only supplying about 50 Jerrycans of water for a full day. It's only in the morning that they can pump about 30 jerrycans after resting it the whole night and about 20 jerrycans in the evening after locking/ resting it in the afternoon. Majority of the people walk 4km to the next village of Isamba to get water. The government tried to drill in this village but they failed. Because of the long distance, majority of the people will move to the nearest swamp to get water.
