“This community has a population of about 700 people comprising the Fula and Mandinka tribes. Both tribes have lived peacefully together. The community practices subsistence farming growing groundnut, maize and millet. The community is facing acute shortage in clean water considering the size of the population with a drop in the water table, attributed to climate change.”

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.
