Water and Sanitation

The water program is divided in two parts: the water enterprise and the water project.

 

Water Enterprise

The Water Enterprise is focused on the treatment of tap water to become clean drinking water that can be bottled and sold as a part of the income generating activities in the center. The equipment needed is installed locally and the community members are well trained and well skilled to take good care of this process.

Water Project

Water is an essential need and is of great demand by the community. Previously it was common to walk to the nearest school to get water from the only water point within our surrounding. Nowadays one can easily see the improvement of the installed water pipelines that provides many families with clean tap water. This is as a result of the water project initiated by the CBO and maintained by the community. To continue improving the water supply for our community the center plans to build another water point.
