“The installation was good, people came in their large numbers to witness the installation of a pump. They had a pump some years ago but it was broken and they had to go back to draw water in open wells. They are extremely happy now because they have started having good water. People would like to grow more trees in the area because of deforestation; they also have a preschool but care givers are not trained. Clean water is a step in the right direction for community development.”
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.
