One of the greatest health concerns of Seje community is the lack of treated drinking water; many community members have suffered unnecessarily from water borne ailments. Efforts had been made to drill bore holes in the community, but they were unsuccessful and it became clear that a larger vision was needed.
In 2008, Community Bible Church, Water Mission International, and the local community-based organization came together to begin a project that would pump water from the Yala river through a purification system, up to a holding tank and into 3 strategic water point locations at Seje Glory Centre Primary, Glory Centre Seje church, and His Blessings School.
A supplemental booster pump and another water point in Mugungu were added in 2013.
In 2015, two new water points were added in Bar Olengo community, with miles of trenches hand-dug by members of the community, bringing the water to 6 points. A generator is set up to run all night to keep the tanks full and the water moving out to all points.
In 2019, the system was revamped, and the changes in the system increased the distribution of water from 10,000 to 30,000 cubic meters a day. When the system is running at full capacity it now services as many as 2,000 families (an estimated 12,000 people) in the region.
The system has faced a number of challenges, but it continues to provide clean water and better health throughout the community.
