Giving Update: Katuluni Community Hand-Dug Well

People in Katuluni Community are enjoying the benefits of having a functional water project within their locality. Community members can now get clean water from within the village at the sand dam and adjacent hand-dug well that have been reliable sources of water in the year since they were constructed.

“The water point has made our lives easier. We are now getting water from within our village. We are no longer walking for long distances in search of water for household use,” said Musyimi Musyoka, a member of the self-help group that supports the dam and well.

The levels of hygiene and sanitation at the locality have significantly improved owing to the water availability and the hygiene training which was conducted as a part of this water project.

“Our life has been made simpler and happier through the implementation of this water project. We are happy the water is clean and sweet,” David Mutemi said.

The surrounding landscape looks beautiful with green vegetables and plants growing as a result of the available water. Livestock and other domestic animals are now healthy since they can access more water for drinking unlike before where they had to walk for long distances.

“Our livestock now get enough water easily from within the village, something which was never possible in the past before this project,” Mr. Mutemi said.
