Rainwater Harvesting Tanks

The aim of this project is to support vulnerable rural communities in Ouganda.

An initiative of RWENZORI RURAL HEALTH SERVICES

Overview of the project

Rainwater harvesting tanks were majorly established to resource constrained and vulnerable rural communities of Kibolhu, Kabughabugha, and Nyakabingo in Rukoki Subcounty, Kasese District, Uganda, East Africa. This was due to the terrain and hard to reach areas while looking for domestic water for home consumption.
