Challenge

Dirty water in the area causes nearly 20 people to be sent to Hospital per week suffering from related diseases like; malaria, typhoid, bilharzia or dysentery with at least 4 out of each of these ending up dying per month. In an interview, most respondents in this area mistook all these diseases to be generally Malaria. The rampant women rape cases and child kidnap for ritual sacrifice in the area, have been commonly as a result of them fetching water from distant isolated bushy - swampy area

Solution

This project will improve community health by; equitably distributing clean-hand dug water wells installed with boreholes to ensure easy access to safe water at every section of the community, sensitizing community on good hygiene and safeguarding against water born diseases, fund raising to access funds that will be used to dig and construct safe water wells, fund raise locally to be able to make own local contribution before donor funding, promote the formation of community water committee.

Long-Term Impact

- Reduced deaths from dirty water diseases in the area and assured better health standards, hence increased life expectancy in the focal areas. - Provide sufficient supply, even distribution and access to clean safe water by 7200 residents. - Reduced women rape cases - Reduced child sacrifice cases - Reduced women abuse cases like battering and overwork. - Increased family income because of better health - - Increased number of children and youths (mainly girls) going to school
