A Year Later: Improved Health and More Time!

Before the new protected spring was installed, life in Mukhweso Community was difficult. Community members would waste a significant amount of time scooping water.

“It was difficult because the environment of the water was not suitable,” said Helen Kweyu, 37, who is chairperson of the Mukheso water user committee.

The last year has made a dramatic difference for Helen. “Now, it is fantastic since the water is safe and protected. It has impacted and improved our health. It has helped to utilize my time since I don’t waste time fetching the water. It has also helped me to access the water point easily.”
