Water Well For Father Frank’s Caritas Farm

Start a Campaign
The difficulty of finding clean water and available food are both common realities for poor Ugandans. CARITAS For Children is creating a long-term strategy to tackle this issue with the help of Fr. Frank, a 2017 Graduate of our Sponsor-a-Seminarian program.

Through donations to our Special Feeding Program, Fr. Frank was able to pay the first-year’s operational expenses to begin a 24-acre farm. Fr. Frank, who personally oversees the farm, told us that his biggest need is to have a well and irrigation system on the property.

After our initial analysis of all the needs, the total cost of the Well and Irrigation System was a little over $10,000. Thanks to our many sponsors and donors, CARITAS has aquired enough funds to start building the Water Well and the Irrigation System.

However, after continuing to discuss the possibilities of this well, we realized that it could be of much greater benefit than just supplying water to the farm and helping to feed a local Catholic Primary School of 300+ children a year.

In the district where this farm is located, a total of 600 kilometers squared is home to nearly 200,000 people. We've decided to help these people also through this project. In order to do so, we will have to add more features to this water well, including an electric pump, 8 spigots, and a fence to protect the well. 

This deepwater well will be the first of its kind ever in the area and will be able to serve the water needs of at least 3,000 families with over 60,000 liters of clean fresh water every day, at least.

We have already chosen a reputable company in Uganda to be responsible for creating the deep well, and all the extra features and components that are needed to make this endeavor a success.

e have almost reached the fundraising goal to fully finance Fr. Frank’s water well. We are about $6,200 short of the amount needed to fully fund this project. In your charity, we ask you to consider helping us to reach this goal, and to share this campaign with your friends and family.

Thank you for your consideration to help water Fr. Franks Caritas Farm, feed school children in the area, and give clean water to thousands of families.
