This village is neighbored by Nyasirenge, Popiyo, and Sere “C”. There is a local trading center and a couple schools in the immediately surrounding areas. Most people travel a long distance to get water from the Nyakiringa Zone. Some elderly people have immense difficulties getting water stemming from the distance to the nearest water source, and the fact that many of them do not have younger family members who can obtain water for them. If this village is given the opportunity to drink water from a deepwater well, it will dramatically improve the villages overall health and improve the mortality rate.
