Challenge

This village is endangered by cholera and other water related diseases because of lack of pipe born water.The village has a population of about 2700. It has three Primary schools, Two Secondary schools, two health centers and three Churches. All these institutions beside the entire populations are really in a big problem of lack of portable drinking water. We have been able to construct three catchments connected water to the quarters and now we are in desperate need of a storage Tank.

Solution

Construction of the the Water Storage Tank will be a huge asset and to be an advantage for us to completely solve the problem as indicated above. The Tank will be used firstly as a treatment point and secondly, for control of proper distribution to the entire village. All Water related diseases shall be eliminated because clean water shall be made available at all times especially during the dry season. Money spent in these water related illnesses shall be used to improve standard of living.

Long-Term Impact

This project will sustainably provide clean water to the entire community and equally fight against all water related diseases in the village. It will also give the villagers the responsibility to train members of community on water management skills. The committee members will also have the advantage of working as a team. Children and elders will not more be fighting with animals to carry water from dirty and unprotected spring sources especially during the dry seasons Health standard improved
