“Lack of safe and clean drinking water has negatively impacted on our children’s health and education. Access to safe water will change our lives and bring a sense of peace and happiness. This water source constructed means that our girls and boys will now focus on their schooling. I am so excited,” she says. “This water source means that I will drink clean and safe water. I will constantly wash my daughter’s school uniform and bathe,”. My daughter can now invest her time in reading and doing her homework. Special thanks go to Drop4Drop and Last Night A DJ Saved my life Foundation. Water wells like this make a healthier community by providing clean running water for drinking and washing. “I saw hundreds of children walking to use the pump, each carrying a jug of water taken from home to use at school where clean drinking water is available,” George said “Before the pump was installed, I had watched one young boy stop while running in the school yard to drink water from a dirty seep hole that was next to a dried creek, cluttered with trash,” said George.

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.
