Serves: A community of 216 households, plus two schools which draw from the surrounding area with a combined enrollment of 1,135 students
The community's water source was a pond, which they shared with animals. Located almost two kilometers from St. Michael Primary School, the head teacher said it could take the children almost three hours to make the trip to collect water.
“We are extremely happy because of this clean water source in our midst from our good friends of St. Thérèse Foundation in America. We have been having challenges of illnesses due to using dirty water all the past years. We tried to lobby for a clean water source like this from the government and other charity organizations but failed. Every request was being turned down. That is why we are indeed very grateful to St. Thérèse for responding to our plea, which was rejected by many."
—Joseph Kalyowa, community chairman
