This project would provide access to safe clean drinking water in rural communities in Northern, Nigeria. Our mission is to ensure that 100000 by the end of 2021 have access to water & sanitation. The project will build tube wells, handheld pumps, ventilated improved pit toilets, train children on good hand washing practices and workshops on making schools WASH Friendly . The project will also provide WASH materials, face masks, sanitizers and palliatives to prevent COVID 19 in the communities.
The natural water sources in rural communities in Nigeria are limited & lack water purification system, 34,567 people in most rural communities in Kano have been living without insufficient, broken down and unclean water sources for many years which leads to outbreaks of diseases with inadequate healthcare facilities. The lack of these facilities has further heightened the spread of pandemic in our communities. This project will affect more than 100000 women and children by 2022.
The project will provide access to water for the communities as well as WASH materials such as powdered detergent and soaps for good hygiene practices which will in turn improve the quality of lives. We will also provide training to the community on good hand washing practices and hygiene practices to schools to make them WASH Friendly Schools especially now with the pandemic ; also other pro poor initiatives will be adopted on economic growth through the use of local water filtration methods.
The project will impact on more than 100000 children, women and the elderly who are the most vulnerable within & in surrounding villages on good hand washing & hygiene practices which will improve the quality of their lives. It will also help in developing local business amongst women through the sale of purified water using local water filtration methods. The project will also educate the community on water storage and home management of water as well as making our schools WASH friendly.
