Enable the community of Ambelalie, Ethiopia to improve their health and to use their time for economic development by building and maintaining a sustainable safe water & sanitation system
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
For the 250 residents of Ambelalie fetching water is a daily struggle that often takes hours to complete. Traditional water sources are vanishing & the disappearance of natural forests & vegetation cover has accelerated soil erosion, causing a severe decrease in water infiltration rates to underground aquifers. They must share the available water sources with neighboring villages, resulting in fighting between village men & women who are desperate to provide water for their families
How will this project solve this problem?
The project consists of putting in a new deep tubewell with hand-pump and drainage system and pit latrines for each household. Project also includes health education, community development and technical training.
Potential Long Term Impact
250 people will gain access to safe & adequate water & sanitation facilities.
