Giving Update: Chisombe Spring

“Initially, getting water here was so disappointing. Imagine coming for water when it is very cold, and you have to step in water to fetch it. More so, during the dry spell, you could waste a lot of your time queuing for water because we did not capture all the possible water sources like they are now,” said Lydia.

“Now fetching water is just amazing. You place your container under the discharge pipe, and within no time, the container is full. Currently, we are not wasting time at the water point. This has helped me gain time for doing homework or revision.”

“Before implementing this water point, water borne and water related diseases were so rampant from water fetched here, especially for young kids like me. So in most cases, I could miss going to school because of those water borne and water related diseases. But since implementation, I rarely miss going to school. Only during Covid 19 disease, when school was closed, did I miss schooling. Since implementation, the water point curbed a lot of challenges we used to undergo, helping us concentrate on education.”
