Mumiramira village community is located at, Ngara district in Kagera region with population of more than 3,629 residents. In a way of solving the problem of inadequate water supply, communities decided to organize themselves to use the available water sources with support from other stakeholders. The major project objective was to improve access to water supply. The major activity planned under this project was to provide water management awareness and construct water supply schemes. With the support from the CED student, and GAD consult as well as the village government, the community and the management of Kabanga Nickel Company managed through community participatory methods to provide proper water management awareness to the community and provide water supply schemes. A non experimental research design was adopted where cross sectional survey methods were used to examine the relationship between variables. The data collection methodology used a mixture of open participatory tools. The Sampling process used both probability sampling and non-probability sampling. The design of the project was community based. Evaluation of the project has been done in order to assess achievements of the project and its sustainability. The CED student has managed to meet his objectives of facilitating the process at this point where the main project activities have been done. Participation of the community towards the project was very good but the community should further be educated on fully participation.
