Kolley Kunda Village, Foni Jarrol District, The Gambia

‘Kolley Kunda village is located on the outskirts of Kampassa. It is a Fula tribe community of roughly 250 people, who have been isolated apart from Kampassa. It is a subsistence farming community growing groundnut, and millet. The community has only one water source which broke down for a long while now, as a result the community is currently depending on Kampassa village for water, and they are not welcoming there. This has often resulted into scuffles and quarrels between the two neighboring communities. The water crisis in this village is severe’

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.
