Call for action

For the past many months, data accompanied with pictures about Kisoro and its people have been circulating in media and social platforms revealing how that district has been under trouble due to the problem of lack water, and there has never been any effective intervention for such a challenge that has persisted over a long period of time. Last weekend (10th and 11th, September, 2016), I and a close friend called Muhawe Edson initiated a campaign to mobilize and organize all efforts necessary to find a solution to this water stress in Kisoro. According to many research evidences, the district of Kisoro has been having no access to safe drinking water for many years, with some sub counties having access as low as 7% (For example, Muramba and Nyarusiza). This severe water shortage, usually worsened during dry spells or seasons has resulted in many economical, social, and healthy related challenges that greatly affect the people’s development and living.
