Stories and Community Profile

This project was implemented by another partner, but is now monitored and maintained by The Water Project together with Mariatu’s Hope.

A Sierra Leone team member commented, “There was a boy named Hasson constrained to a wheelchair who previously was unable to get water using the rope and rubber, but because of the pump, he was now able to manage to get water for himself.”

When the team arrived, community members were utilizing an unprotected hand dug well to meet all of their water needs. Because of this, families were suffering from dysentery, typhoid and malaria. The Sierra Leone team was pleased to learn of the community’s use of a covered pit latrine as this will help prevent further spread of disease in the area. During the team’s stay, community members assembled a water committee consisting of five men and five women who assisted the team with the water project whenever possible. Most community members are Protestant or Muslim and farm or petty trade to earn a living. The nearest school is located .5 of a kilometer away from the community whose students, teachers and administrative personnel all have access to the new, safe water source.

During the hygiene education, the Sierra Leone team addresses: Hand washing, how to properly transport and store water, disease transmission and prevention, how to maintain proper care of the pump, as well as signs and symptoms of dehydration and how to make Oral Rehydration Solution. All of these lessons are taught in a participatory method to help community members discover ways to improve their hygiene and sanitation choices, and implement community driven solutions.
