“Our children can longer miss school anymore! As a community we used to spend a lot of time going back and forth to fetch enough water for the house chores, for our animals as well as for our plants at home. The nearby water source was so far away from our village. Our children used to be inconvenienced as they used to arrive late at school receiving punishments at times, some even dodged classes and hide in the forests and bushes near the schools. This was very dangerous because parents most times were unaware of this. With this water source that is closer to our homes, there will be no long journeys in search for clean water. Now our children can go to school in time and we expect improved performances. Thank you for the safe water.”

This project was undertaken as part of our campaign of projects that actively reduce carbon emissions. This project helped the community save their much needed wood which was previously being burnt daily to boil water. This project has also eliminated the many thousands of hours previously spent on walking to collect water.
