The Mutanda secondary school well was named after a government aided school by the same name. The school is located in Alengo village in Diima parish, Mutunda sub-county, Kiryandongo district. The school supports 168 children (87 girls and 81 boys) from eight villages of Pii Akeyo, Diima A, Diima B, Barudugu, Alengo, Paale, Laboke Hanga and Diima Hanga located around the school.
Mutanda Secondary School is located on the Kampala Gulu highway approximately 2 kilometers from the main road and about 28 kilometers from Bweyale Town Council. The school water point supports both the students and community members that live around the school (about 80 households). The majority of population are Acholi with few Langis and Alur , who migrated from northern Uganda during war between the government and lord resistant army (LRA). The main source of livelihood of the people in this area is peasant farming mainly growing maize, cassava and beans.
The Mutunda SS borehole is an old well which had no water user committee in place which posed a grave challenge to the well’s operation and maintenance ultimately leading to its break down. When the water point broke down in 2017, there was no money for maintenance and repair, it was abandon by both school and community for 2 years.
In the 2019 The Water Trust rehabilitated the well, a water sanitation committee was also trained to support Operation and Maintenance of the well. The committee was trained and empowered with the knowledge of operation and maintenance of the borehole, roles and responsibilities of committee members among others. In addition, self-help group was trained to help in mobilizing money for operation and maintenance and boosting up personal savings of the community served by the well.
