Janneh Kunda Village, Kiang West District, The Gambia

‘The Village of Taborang Koto is located off the Trans-Gambia South Bank Road about 20 km off Sankandi Junction. It has a population of roughly 300 people. This remote village has only one hand pump serving the entire village and as a result of the high pressure it keeps breaking down due to poor standard parts and repair. Because of this, community members have to use open wells that can potentially cause sickness. The community is made up of the Mandinka tribe who survive primarily by way of subsistence farming in groundnuts and millet.’

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.
