IGF has installed 36 water bores with pumps in its schools and in surrounding communities.  In 2014, IGF has worked in partnership with Water Harvest International (based in Juba, South Sudan), to drill 20 boreholes for the least served regions in northern Uganda.   IGF also assesses non-functional boreholes and refurbishes them back to working condition, thus far rehabilitating 34 such boreholes.

To strengthen local capacity and to sustainably manage WASH resources, IGF works with local communities to train Water User Committees in the operation and maintenance of boreholes.  These committees are responsible for repairing and maintaining their own boreholes.

IGF has also installed over 20 rainwater-harvesting tanks to provide safe water for our school children to increase ease of collection and reduce the strain on overused borehole facilities.
