During the period between January and March 2017 we faced severe drought in the area with communities at risk of contracting diarrheal illness. Water sources were running dry and heavily contaminated, shared with animals as well as used for washing clothes and bathing.
Because of the drought there has been overwhelming demand for water from the Sondu Water Enterprise, with people lining up for water as early as 5 am in the morning and the center staying operational during evening hours and weekend.
Following several management meetings to prioritize the most urgent requirements, SWAP management settled on the following, which needed funding.
Business Permit- Annual requirements for enterprises
Fencing and installation of a gate for security reasons.
Additional 5000 liter tank to increase capacity and provide more water
Distribution of IEC materials / Calendars as incentives for customers
Sale of Clean Vessels – 20 liters jerry cans
Monthly water quality water testing of the water sold to the communities
Monthly Wages of the water operator and security operator
Monitoring visits by the Management Team of SWAP and ongoing mentoring
Provision of cleaning materials, toilet tissue, hand washing soap.
