“This clean water bore-well is a blessing to us. Previously before installation the collection of water is a struggle and a burden for us. We have to travel long distances to get water which means we cannot send our children to school on time or us, the women, cannot enter paid employment. Now, thanks to this well, our burdens are relieved. We have more time in our day to focus on our livelihoods and we are much energised as we only walk for 1 minute to collect water and our chore of water collection is complete very quickly each day. Many thanks to the donor of this well.”

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.
