Kabocorr Village, Foni Bintang Karanai District, The Gambia

“Kabokorr village is situated east of Tampoto, and west of Killy Village along the Trans-Gambia South Bank Road. The community consists of Jola and Mandinka tribes living harmoniously together. The community is a subsistence farming community, growing groundnut, millet and rice. Rice remains the most common grown food in the community especially among women who sell the proceeds for sustenance of their family and certain social functions. The Village has been suffering from lack of clean drinking water due to the large number of people within the community especially during the rainy season when their open wells got damaged by rain runoff. The current water source is not enough to serve the entire village.”

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.
