Summary

Yelwa Shendam, a market village located in the southern part of Plateau State, Nigeria with people from different ethnic and religious groups, is in dire need of potable water. The village is bubbling with renewed activities fifteen years after ethno-religious conflict, all thanks to the Inter-Faith Peace Committee made up of both Christian and Muslim leaders aimed at mending fences with aggrieved individuals. Provision of water would aid to build bridges of trust and peace in the community.
