March 2016 Uganda Travel Team Update


The travel team has been on the ground in Uganda since Saturday, March 12.  They have successfully drilled a new well in the Kiryabicooli community, installing the concrete cap on March 17.  They also conducted a positive community meeting during which residents suggested new water projects.  The potential new project sites were toured and evaluated. 

The team is also overseeing the restart of the biogas digester.  Purchased cow manure has been added to the digester bag for a few weeks now.  Gas is being produced.  The contractor is transitioning from cow manure to the pig and goat manure available on the farm.  The 50-foot long, 8-foot diameter digester bag is nearly fully inflated now.
