“This village is located about 6km north of the Trans-Gambia south bank road via Arenkoli Kunda. It is a Jola tribe community of roughly 300 people. It is a subsistence farming community growing groundnut, millet and rice. This community is remote and it has only one water source for the entire community which broke down for a long while now, the community is using open wells for drinking and other household activities causing various illnesses. It also plays host for several refugees fleeing from Southern Senegalese region of Cassamance. The water crisis in this village is severe.”

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.
