Expanding Access to Water & Sanitation in Caqalai

Merging for a Greater Reach

By Daniel Sitarenios | Operations Manager

Dear Supporters,


Our work in Fiji is far from complete but with you by our side we have done some amazing work! We started work on two Islands, Dawasamu and Caquali in Fiji and as we progress we are looking to extend our work to other neighbouring Islands. 


Although Fiji is surrounded by water the funding and support to provide clean and safe drinking water is simply nonexistent and therefore the only way many community members are able to safely access drinking water during the dry season is from your commitment and donations that have allowed us to install rainwater harvesting systems in the community. While we have installed over 10 systems and invested over $14,000 into a number of systems we still have a high demand as you can imagine with Fiji being made up of over 400 Islands. 


This project is 100% sustainable and making use of natural resources to improve the lives and health of all the community members we meet in Fiji and we will not stop until everyone across all Islands have access to clean and safe drinking water and sanitation. This is increasingly more important with the current COVID-19 pandemic flooding the world. 


Did you know that a donation of $200 will fund a filter, filter system and lockable tap to source one family with access to clean drinking water for their family.  


We initially started two projects for each Island we were based on and as we move to the next stage of our journey we have decided to have one project tackling the one issue and therefore this is our final project report on this project. However the work is not stopping here and we invite you to join us on our project here https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/rain-water-harvesting-and-sanitation/ that is the same as this one but will be scaling up due to your generous donations to offer safe drinking water to even more Islands and communities across Fiji. 


With Gratitude,


Caqalai Water
