Clean water, and sanitation practices are essential for the survival and development of a community. People in Bulega community and the surrounding communities do not have access to safe and clean water sources, and do not use improved sanitation.

Yet, poor sanitation and unclean water related problems diseases and one of the causes of death.

Uganda Buddhist Centre, initiated a Water and Sanitation project to provide and improve water and sanitation. The Centre has drilled three (3) water sources (boreholes) with clean and pure water.

However, the boreholes keep breaking down, and this hinders the supply of water to the communities. The Centre resolved to drill a machine-operated borehole as an alternative to the manual boreholes. The move was seen to be both financially and ecologically reliable. In April, the work of drilling a machine operated borehole kicked off.
