The women walk 4km, every day to fetch water until the project financed the digging of a water well in the local village. The well is 6 meters deep and has an ample supply of water. People are using a bucket and rope to pull water from the well, but we bought a hand pump to install.
Understanding that we need to move people from a slave mentality, we made the installation subject to the community providing the crusher rock and river sand for us to build the concrete platform.
We hope to soon report on the completion of this initiative.
