Clean Water/Kyango & Mitondo Villages, Rakai Uganda
In the name of Allah (most gracious, most merciful).
The people of Mitondo and Kyango villages and the entire county share one spring well, however, many residents of these villages have to walk 4 or more miles to get to this well (Imagine someone fasting walking this distance).
By providing Bore Holes (Naikondos) to the residents ( muslims and non muslims) of Mitondo and Kyango, we are fulfilling one of our Daawa obligations as an Organization and at the same time giving our Sadakatul Jaaria as individuals, hence saving the residents of these communities the long walks to reach clean water.
The construction of a Bore hole (Naikondo) could take as little as one and half months to complete. Insha’Allah, our target is to complete a borehole this Ramadan;
Villages in Uganda typically get their water from spring wells; some far, others even further. Our vision is to target one village or two at a time in proving Bore Hole Wells closer to the people.
We hope to collaborate with other community-based services in the future; however, our first phase of the project is planned to be fully funded by UAMA members and well-wishers.

The need for clean water is endless; our plan is to continuously extend this service to other villages of the country.
