Giving Update: Burachu B Community, Namukhuvichi Spring

“Before, coming to the spring to get water was very difficult because I was not able to get clean water. Most of the time, the water was dirty due to its openness, and we had no clear access.”

“It was easy to fall in the water because we used to stand on a stone to fetch. If you slid even a bit, you found yourself in the pool of water which got dirty and at the same time you would not able to fetch it.”

“Right now, I am able to get clean and safe water because I just put down the container at the discharge pipe, then fetch it.”

“We have also been enabled with stairs which makes it easy to get water even during the rainy season because it is not slippery.”

“Having this water point has helped me improve my studies during the past year. Having easy access to clean water has made me use my time well and this was why I got an award in school as the most improved and at the same time the cleanest pupil. This came as a result of washing my uniform with enough water that is readily available.”
