Challenge

Obtaining safe water for drinking has remained a prerogative to the privileged few in Nigeria. Water supplies in public schools, health care institutions and other public sources are often contaminated due to the lack of proper sewage waste management. Prevalence of water-born diseases (such as typhoid fever and cholera) has been on the increase, especially among children and the elderly.

Solution

The villagers will be trained to properly operate and maintain the water supply system in order to assure long-term sustainability of the system.

Long-Term Impact

To provide sanitary drinking water in public sources like health institutions and schools, and to provide water quality monitoring training to students to identify problems of water-borne diseases.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a PDF file (projdoc.pdf).
