Ws Notes
Alex, Steven and Falon together with two Hand pump mechanics, Kabugo and Godfrey from Namutumba District were in Bukudhumira village at Nawaikona P/S to repair a well there. This borehole has been having a lot of challenges breaking down almost every week due to the bad type pipes that were originally installed. This borehole had been installed with plastic pipes but unfortunately these had all developed leakages that it would take between 20-30 minutes to fill up a jerrycan. Also the head assembly was faulty and a cylinder too. This well serves mostly the primary school that has a population of between 800-1000 pupils , a health center facility together with the village people who live around the school. Alex met with the head teacher of the school, Mrs Lydia who begged Kibo to help them and he also met with the water user committee. They accepted to cooperate with Kibo and made a community contribution towards their well repair. He also conducted some training sessions about their borehole roles and responsibilities and making sure that they have a plan in place to take on the repair anytime it breaks down. The two hand pump mechanics, Kibo staff Alex and Steven together with some water user committee members removed the old parts and installed the new parts that were bought. New stainless pipes, new rods, water tank, head assembly and a new cylinder were bought and installed. The head teacher and the chairman of the water user committee Badagawa was extremely very thankful to Kibo group for the support. The borehole was left working very well and the school children were happy enjoying the water. Kibo group and the hand pump mechanic will continue to monitor the performance and state of this well.
