Dobong Village, West Coast Region, The Gambia

“This community is about 1.5 km from Bwiam along the Trans-Gambia south bank road. It is a Manjago and Jola mixed tribe community. It is a subsistence farming community. The community is facing water shortage as its only water source with twin hand pumps has broken and as a result, they travel about 1.5 km to the neighbouring village of Bwiam to fetch water on a daily basis. This has disrupted their life and sustenance. Now they are not facing these issues as they have a source of clean water within a short walking distance of their homes.”

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.
