Water For Families

Sinoko center in Koplomai division in Cherengani had no water source for the last years the CDF office in the yeat 2006 saw the need because the residents were travelling more than 2 kilometres in search of the precious commodity. The schools also in the neighbourhood of the center, had no choice but also follow the sane cause of the problem. After the borehole was dug in the area, the residents are happy because they get their water in their reach having not to travel Kilometres and the time they lost is now being used to generate income to sustain their families.
