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: Our field teams were able to take a photo of your project while it was under construction. We've included that photo in your set so that you can see part of the construction process!
