Kambong Village, West Coast Region, The Gambia

‘Kambong Village is located along the Trans-Gambia south Bank Road. It is a Jola and Fula tribe community. Both tribes live peacefully together. It is a subsistence farming community, growing groundnut, millet and rice. The Village has been suffering from lack of water due to the large number of people within the community with only one water source has been broken for a long time. The community’s only one water source is been broken for a long while and as a result open wells are used for drinking. Some people walk miles to other neighbouring villages for water. The influx of refugees fleeing the Casamance conflict has worsened the situation.’

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.
