Kyangala Trust has sponsored “Operation Wellfound”, a UK partner organisation to sink 3 boreholes close to Kyangala. The villagers now have access to water close to their homes. This has stopped many of them having to walk for 4 hours to fetch the water they need for their daily life.
This has made a big difference to their lives. The picture above says it all!
Project No.2 Sand Dam
When it rains in Kyanagala there are flash floods. These floods wash away the sandy top soil in the river valleys. The purpose of the concrete dam is to capture the damp sand as this is a store of water. It permeates in the spaces between the sand particles. The water can then be pumped to adjacent fields for irrigation. It is hoped that the dam will be built this year in conjunction with the United Nations..
Project No.3 Mithu Community Borehole
In May 2015 the Kyangala Trust paid for the repair of the collapsed borehole and repairs to pumps.
