The project aimed to provide selected communities in three Districts of Eastern Uganda with access to a clean and reliable domestic water supply. It planned to rehabilitate 120 boreholes, equip these with handpumps suitable for a Village Level Operation and Maintenance system (VLOM), and set up the community element of the new handpump Operations and Maintenance (O&M) system. The project also planned to support health education and improved sanitation in the same communities, so as to reinforce the potential health benefits from improved rural water supplies. It was initiated and implemented by WaterAid, an NGO set up by the UK Water Industry. ODA contributed £236,000 to the project. Some 234 boreholes were rehabilitated over the period June 1989 to June 1992. Work had just begun in the third district when the project ended
