The school and community do not have access to safe water. They currently are collecting water from a hand dug well covered with a metal cover. They drop buckets with the dirty rope into the water again and again, continuing to contaminate the water. There are no clean water points near this community, only other shallow hand dug wells.
Waterborne illnesses are common including diarrhea, typhoid, and parasites. You would see young children with pot bellies full of worms. They can be treated but continue to return due to the contaminated water source.
Life is tough and learning is even harder when you don’t feel well. Children miss school often due to waterborne illnesses.
All projects are made possible by World Changers.
