Giving Update: Elijah Kwalanda Spring

"Before this project was completed, it was hard to get water. The area around the spring was so slippery and surrounded by bush that I feared going to the spring early in the morning and late in the evening," said Elvin.

"To get water from this water point is simpler because our spring has a pipe, and it takes less time to fill a jerrican. The adults never harass us, and this has brought light and peace in this community."

"Availability of water has helped my parents to start an income-generating activity which is making bricks and selling to other community members. This project has removed us from poverty, and we are really enjoying the new life."
