Jula Kunda Village, Kiang West District, The Gambia

‘Jula Kunda is located about 25 KM off the Trans-Gambia south Bank Road via Sankandi, and then branch from Karantaba Junction. This remote community is a subsistence farming community, growing groundnut, millet and rice. It is dominated by the Mandinka tribe. The community has two water sources one of which has not been functional for a long while and as a result severe water scarcity hits the village resulting to villagers travelling to long distant villages searching for water. Women and girls are currently facing the brunt.’

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.
