Community Profile

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

BACKGROUND.

The proposed Nabunulu water project is a community well that was hand dug in 1989. The aim was to provide clean and safe water for the community since they had experienced previous problems with inadequate safe water supplies. The well was fitted with an anira pump. The well served the people until the pumps parts wore out and they could not get the spare parts locally. The communities send a delegation to BWP and requested for their well to be repaired since water is not easily accessible with any functioning hand dug well.

CURRENT WATER SOURCE.

The community currently gets water from a small stream called Eshitaro. The stream is 2km away from this community and the water safety is not guaranteed. The stream also dries up during the dry season.

POPULATION.

This community has a population of 60 households with each homestead having approximately 6 members per household.

HYGIENE   AND SANITATION.

The Hygiene and sanitation of the community is good. Most homes have Latrines, Cloth lines and utensil rack. The animals have an enclosed shed. 

PROJECT BENEFICIARIES.

If rehabilitated, the well will serve the entire community members of Navunulu.There is a Deliverance church located a few meters away from the well and members of the church will also benefit from the well.

ASSESSING THE NEED.

BWP has done a baseline survey and come to a conclusion that this well should be rehabilitated so as to provide safe and clean water for the community in general.

WATER COMMITTEE.

They have a water committee that is inactive since the well has not been functioning for some time, but they have accepted to form a new Water Committee with the help of BWP staff. The committee will foresee the daily running of the water source and ensure that the well is sustainable.

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.
