Situation

Without clean water, people continue to drink contaminated water and therefore frequently catch water borne diseases, which are often fatal. Girls spend hours each day fetching water when they otherwise would be attending school. It is not uncommon for attacks to take place on this daily journey. Every day is survival without a local source of clean, safe water.

Solution

By capping a nearby spring and having a local source of clean water in the village, 1,300 people will have a future with hope. Disease and death rates will fall. Children will be able to attend school. More food can be grown. Women can gain greater equality. Income will increase and self sufficiency will become possible. Clean water will make a huge difference!
