Muyenga village is located in the Kakindo/Kakumiro Province in Uganda.

This well, drilled in September 2020, serves at least 810 people in the village of Muyenga, sub-county of Kakindo, district of Kakumio, Uganda.  (Once surrounding villages learn of the well, they will frequent it, also).  The well was drilled to a depth of 110 feet with a flow of 1,000 – 2,000 liters per hour.  The pictures included with this response show the successful outcome of the drilled well, with villagers not only pumping clean water but also expressing their joy at finally having access to a safer, healthier water source.

The villagers previously used open ponds and swamps for their water. Young girls were especially vulnerable to violence when getting water. If they were able to make the journey safely, they missed much of the morning school time.
