“The village elders told us this was the first pump they saw near the village and that it made them very happy. It sits in a shady wood at the bottom of a hill accessible from a few different villages. They showed us where they collected the water from before and it was little more than a hole in the ground, totally unprotected and shared with whatever animals came to drink there too.”

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.
