Community Profile

This project is part of Bridge Water Project’s program in Western Kenya. What follows is direct from them:

PROPOSED PROJECT

The proposed Enyalong’o water project rehab is a hand dug well that was done in the year 1988. It was initiated in the year by the Kenya Finland Company (Kefinco) so as to provide water for the people of Enyalong’o community. It was fitted with an Indian Mark II Pump and served the community till the year 2009 and failed. It was difficult to rehabilitate the well since the Indian Mark II spare parts are not locally available. The community hopes that through the intervention of Bridge Water Project their water source will be revived so as to ease their water problem.

CURRENT WATER SOURCE

The people of Enyalong’o community currently fetch their water from Enyalong’o River. The source is located 11/2 km away from the community making it cumbersome for the community members.

POPULATION

The community has a population of 50 household with members between 8 and 10 per household.

SANITATION AND HYGIENE

Most of the homes in the community have pit latrines and utensil racks. However there were very few composite pits and no hand washing points were present.

PROJECT BENEFICIARIES

The project will benefit the people of Enyalong’o community it is rehabilitated.

ASSESSING THE NEED

The Bridge Water Project has seen the need rehabilitate the well by installing an Afridev pump so as to make water accessible to the community. This is because the people travel long distances to get water for their domestic use. The well will also be flushed since it has not been in use for a long time.

WATER COMMITTEE

Currently the project doesn’t have a water committee but with the help of BWP a committee will be formed to foresee the running of the project for the benefit of the community.

We're just getting started, check back soon!

Project Type

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.
