Capacity building of Acholi people in Uganda to develop and manage village water supplies

This project is aimed toward creating safe water sources in an estimated 20 villages, directly supplying safe water needs to the communities, by using electrical resistivity tomography and terrain conductivity surveys to directly benefit approximately 6500 villagers by siting water wells in 10 villages and one school, where the work will largely be carried out by locals and provide geoscience skills such as Electrical Resistivity Tomography (ERT), terrain conductivity, borehole geophysics, and geochemistry to 27 Acholi people.
