‘Before this clean water well we struggled daily for water. I was conflicted, sending my children to school or getting them to help me with water collection. More often than not the task of water collection would take priority, and my children would be late to their classes, and they would be tired after carrying heavy buckets. Now, with this clean water close to our home, we can balance life perfectly, my children can go to classes and not be tired from carrying water long journeys.’
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.
