Challenge

The area population is 146,400 with a safe water coverage of 49%. Many inhabitants draw water from unprotected sources which are usually contaminated, unreliable and distant. The contamination is a result of increased human activity destroying the water catchment areas and effects of climate change. An assessment shows that peoples' hygienic practices are poor due to inadequate hygiene education. This has led to the prevalence of water borne and hygiene diseases such as diarrhea and typhoid

Solution

Two spring water tanks, with a capacity of 5,000 litres each of clean and safe water, serving a community of 1000 people to be constructed. Trees planted will help to improve the micro- climate of the area and protection of the water catchment. Hygiene campaign in vulnerable community schools and the training of Water Sanitation and Hygiene(WASH) Committees to monitor and enforce health and sanitation practices such hand washing with soap.

Long-Term Impact

The spring water tanks will enable the target community have access to safe and clean water thus eliminating incidences of water borne diseases. The trees planted will help to improve the micro- climate of the area and also conserve the water catchment areas. Good hygiene practices will eliminate hygiene and water related diseases leading to improved productivity.
