Field Notes

Thanks to you, this community now has access to clean and safe drinking water. They've also been trained by our local partners on safe hygiene practices and basic maintenance of their water project. Each family using the new water source contributed toward their project's construction -- a small fee, but one that helps instill a sense of personal ownership for the project. Each family will continue to pay a small amount to use the water; the community will save this money for any necessary maintenance and repairs.

Note: We wanted to show you that this community is serious about keeping their project safe, clean and functioning for years to come. They built a fence on their own initiative, to prevent animals from contaminating the area and to show ownership of their new water source.
