The improvement is very much evident in the life of the community since the inception of the project. From the interview and our team’s observations, the people here are very happy and are at ease because they no longer wake up early in the morning to fetch water.

“It was a very big challenge to wake up very early in the morning to fetch water. I no longer am late for school, I have enough time now to study,” said 10-year-old Rosetta Mambu.

It was really not easy to battle for this drinking water they used to drink was even contaminated. Little did we know that it was this contaminated water that brought sickness to the community.

“Water is life and getting clean, pure drinking water at your doorstep is a very big blessing. We have been saved from waking very early to fetch water,” said Rebecca Kamara, the caretaker of the well.

“Sicknesses like typhoid, malaria, and dysentery used to plague us. All of these sicknesses are now history.”

Talking about the sanitation in the community, we were thrilled to see that people are still keeping it high. Their toilets are clean with water and soap and the community and the well site is well kept clean. These changes are effective now of the work done a year ago. Providing safe, clean and pure drinking water to the people and also the teachings of hygiene and sanitation is exceptional.
