Water for Wagalla


Othman needs water to survive. But in Wagalla village, his village, yearly drought and lack of sanitation facilities made water sources scarce, and sometimes even dangerous.

The people needed clean, safe, steady water in his village—not too much, and not too little.

For Othman and others, getting this water is complicated. The women and young girls in the village would have to travel by foot to neighboring villages—sometimes 5 kilometers away—to get safe water. There haven’t been proper tools in place to sustain clean sources …

… Until you helped.
