Community Profile

This project is part of Bridge Water Project’s current well rehabilitation program. The following detail is direct from BWP, and has been edited for clarity: 

The proposed project is a drilled well at Mung’ang’a primary school. The school has a population of 1000 students and 26 teachers.  The hand pump at this school was stolen, and since then the pupils have had to carry water to school from home every day. The head teacher said that the pupils of this school are forced carry water in small containers which is not safe for consumption. Many pupils have left the school due to the poor  conditions. She also said that lack of water in the school has contributed to indiscipline cases among many pupils and poor performance in tests. 

Bridge Water Project is committed to working with the school to both repair the hardware  and develop a hygiene and sanitation training program. A water user committee will be set up and trained on how to manage the facility into the future, especially with regards to maintenance events.

Well rehabilitation is one of the most cost effective ways to bring clean, safe water to a community.  Sometimes it involves fixing a broken hand pump, other times it means sealing a hand dug well to prevent it from being contaminated.  These repairs, and often time total replacements, coupled with sanitation and hygiene training make a huge impact in communities.
