Summary

Your donation will provide access to clean water for rural communities that has been victimized by persistent drought. Clean water helps keep the community healthy. Women and girls will spend less time fetching water and will have free time to attend school. Having toilets at school means teenage girls don't have to miss class when they have their periods. Clean water enables the community to grow ample food and generate more income to improve their living condition.

Challenge

Rural Eritrea derives its water from ponds, streams, and ground springs. Persistent drought and deforestation caused to dry up water sources. Women and girls have to travel several miles a day to fetch water. It is a whole day task. Women can not do productive work and girls cannot attend school. The water they fetch is dirty and kills more people than all forms of violence including war. The majority of those who die are children under 5 years old.

Solution

Water wells will be built in their communities. Access to clean drinking water will improve the social, agricultural & educational lives in the Mealewya Community of more than 4600 residents. Women can work on income generating activities, girls can attend school and be educated citizens instead of water bearers

Long-Term Impact

Residents of the community will have a healthy life by drinking clean water. Schools and day cares will have toilet rooms that has been a problem for many years.
