Northern Uganda Development Foundation
We first meet and talk to village and ask them what they need. Most often this is a well. We then plan the digging of the well together with the villagers, from site selection to installation and management of the well. The important point is to let the villagers know that the well is theirs and they have been involved throughout the planning, implementation, and management stages of the well installation. Once the installation of well is completed, we hand it over to the villagers who take its ownership and management; and we become advisors.
The villagers appoint the chairman, secretary, and treasurer to manage the well. They collect a small fee (from those who can afford to do so; and those who cannot afford, can provide in-kind help such as keeping well site clean) and put the money in the local Bank for future maintenance of the well. Regular meetings are held as a forum for open communications and accountability for the operation of the well.
