The following is an excerpt from a project report describing how people collected water from the spring before it was protected:
“Accessing the pool is very difficult. Community members must climb or slide down the steep bank to the bottom to retrieve water, then lay a collection container sideways in the water to fill it while they balance on rocks. Understandably, it is even more treacherous to climb back out of the cavity with a heavy, full water container, trying hard not to spill the contents, especially during the rainy season when the grass and mud bank become slippery."
Referring to the newly protected spring, Geter Pondi said, "The status of this community has changed due to this new baby we have. He has brought joy, and I feel [my] life has changed."
