Summary

Since Mutulani Borehole was sunk in June 2017, the underground water is still not accessible due to lack of a water pump and collection tanks. Efforts towards partnering with local partners have not yielded much fruits and close to 2 years now, the project is yet to achieve its objective. This project targets to provide water for Mutulani schools and the community that has not been accessible. A total of 2000 children and women will benefit from the project

Challenge

Installation of the Mutulani Borehole water pump and collection tanks will address the challenge of water scarcity during the dry seasons, the distance the school children cover to draw water (about 10 Kilometers two-way) and the cost (about US$1,000 monthly) spent to purchase water for the schools. The project will also reduce cases of water borne diseases as well as time and distance used to reach the existing water sources.

Solution

The installation of the water pump and collection tanks will avail the underground water for use which has been lying unused since the Borehole was drilled. This will provide a constant supply of water to the school children and local women throughout the year. The money and time that was previously used in search for water will be used for other economic purposes to benefit both the children and women

Long-Term Impact

In the long term, the project is expected to lead to: improved health for children and community at large; increased per capita consumption of water; decreased incidences of water borne diseases; reduced cases of absenteeism; improved academic performance; increased engagement in other social and economic activities; and improved sanitation for all in the community especially children and women.
