Clean Water For 1000 Families in Rural Nigeria

Summary

In Bichi community, Sabo, Kano in Nigeria, water shortage leads to various social economic problem such as water related diseases, high work load and burden of going too far distance river by women, poor hygiene at primary schools and disturbance of carrying water from home to school and low income due to high water expenditure. This project will improve access to clean water in the community through sinking of Water borehole and help to reduce the above mentioned challenges.

Challenge

Personal story to show how this problem has been a critical issue is when a community volunteer was privileged to visit the community and spent 2 months. After spending all their life in the city before then, this taught him a lesson of not wasting water whenever privileged to have water. In the village, he had to trek for about 2 kilometers to get to the river or wait and hope for the water tanker retailer who supplies the community water every 5-days.

Solution

We will form a committee that will oversee the overall running of the project and teach entrepreneurship skills to the community youth which they can use to raise money that will help in project maintenance. Advocacy campaigns on the benefit and impact of maintaining the borehole in their community will be launched with public and private partnership including the government. We will educate the girls and women and enlist the support of community leaders in Support Clubs for sustainability.

Long-Term Impact

This borehole project will reduce the outbreaks of water borne diseases and will change the economy and health of the community for the better, like improving the health standards in the schools and markets, improving development and the environment.
