KWENCH will work with the Nthunguni Water Project self-help group to develop water from a perennial spring and distribute it to 17 water points. At present, the village of Mumani has no developed water system at all. The project will also contain sanitation, hygiene and livelihood components.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The village of Mumani has no developed water supply.
How will this project solve this problem?
We will construct a water storage and distribution system with 17 water points. Additional water points may be added later.
Potential Long Term Impact
Women will spend less time gathering water. Rats of water-related diseases will decrease as a result of a clean water source, clean toilets with handwashing stations and hygiene eduction. Farmers stand to double their productivity by using compost generated by the composting toilet blocks. Jobs will be created at the water points selling water and at the composting toilets cleaning the toilets and collecting user fees.
This project has been retired and is no longer accepting donations.
