Stories and Community Profile

“The routine schedule of most of Givunji Village is doing household chores, fetching water, attending to farms and looking for any other means of getting income. Most of the people here are unemployed, so one has to work extra hard to get a living,” said local woman Faith Imali.

Mrs. Imali added, “We drink dirty water! That has predisposed many of us to a lot of ill health conditions. There has been a lot of stomach distress cases, more so among children who sometimes drink raw water at the spring point.”

When this project is fully funded, Givunji Spring will be transformed into a safe source of clean water. Community members will be trained on proper hygiene and sanitation practices, and will receive a head start with five sanitation platforms for new latrines.
