Wassadu Village, Foni Jarrol District, The Gambia

‘Wassadu village is located about 3 KM off the Trans-Gambia south Bank Road via south of Arenkoli Kunda. It is a community of about 1500 people. The community is primarily made up of the Jola tribe, with some Mandinka and Fula as well. The Sanyang are believed to be the traditional custodians of the village. The current water source of the village is far inadequate for the population, and as a result people suffer water shortage resulting into people using old open wells that is harmful.’

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.
