The Life in Morobo is Keep Changing

I met Ms. Betty Ayozo pumping water from the new well at Onbatikiriko primary school. Mrs Betty is 23 years old and she has 2 children. She had to walk more than 1 kilometer to pumping water.

This is the only place where people can obtain safe water. Sometimes there is long queue and people have to wait more than one hour. She used to use river water for cooking and the food was stained by the water at that time.

The family using the well at school has to pay 1 pound per month per family to Well maintenance committee. The well is placed in the school site therefore the students at the school have a priority for use of the well. However, people have a recognition that the maintenance of the well need to be managed by society.
