“We will have enough food this year for our families now that there is enough water for our gardens, our animals
and homes”, she continues. Ruth, 38 and mother of six children further adds, “I can expand my farm to increase our food supply and fight hunger.”

She recalled that before the construction of this water source, she spent most of her time fetching water. She now
plans to focus on pursuing a livelihood and generate income for her family.

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.
