Starlight Women Group Improves The Standards Of Living

Two years ago, women in Chereta village were walking for miles of kilometres to find clean water. But all this has changed. They are now able to access clean water right outside their door steps. Thanks to the star light women group which contributed a tank to every home. Because of this, their long journeys are long gone and they are able to enjoy life just like any other women in the world. So I would be happy to enjoy with them. If I can get also a tank for fencing clean water. Something is contribution of borehole which also was drilled few years ago and we have enjoyed that project so if possible I would thankful if you can start project like that borehole within our area to help us growing vegetables fencing water and also giving our animals to improve our living standards, we would be thankful.
