Jali Village, Kiang West District, The Gambia

‘Jali is located about 6 KM off the Trans-Gambia south Bank Road via Sankandi. It is a Mandinka tribe community of roughly 2,500 people. It is a subsistence farming community, growing groundnut, millet and rice. The Village has been suffering from lack of water due to the large number of people within the community especially during the rainy season. The current water source is not enough to serve the entire village and as a result some people took to open wells for usage.’

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.
