Bring Safe, Clean Water to Ethiopian Children


The Samre Water project got underway in late 2005 with the first stage of an intensive community hygiene and sanitation education program. Samre also began construction of latrines in model homes. The communities also elected a water committee to oversee the project.

Additionally, our partner initiated and conducted a comprehensive well site selection survey. Based on the surveys findings, eight sites for new wells have been selected and construction will begin over the next three months.
