Field Notes

Thanks to you, this village 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: You may be wondering why there are so many different stands for this village, and we’re happy to say that this gravity fed system was able to provide many stands with running water in this village. This decreases the distance women and children are required to walk in order to have access to clean safe drinking water.

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.

Note: You may have noticed that the name of the village on the plaque is different than that on your page. Don’t worry, this doesn’t mean that these are the wrong pictures. The name you see on your page is the water point site name or a smaller section of the village. The name on the plaque the more general name for that region. We apologize for any confusion, but assure you that these pictures are from your specific project.
