NAKAKONGE AND KIRINDI WATER, SANITATION AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT PROJECT
Perched on the western banks of the River Nile about 30 kilometres from its source in the town of Jinja in Uganda, lie the sleepy twin villages of Nakakonge and Kirindi. By road, the villages are about 90 kilometres north east of Kampala, the capital city of Uganda.
Fishing was once an important activity but with overfishing and population growth, this has now declined significantly. Villagers are now engaged mainly in subsistence agriculture.
