Making Drinking Water Safe

Ɖorgovska mahala, Serbia

 

Safe drinking water is very important. Water that is “clean” is not always safe to drink. Sometimes it can be contaminated with bacteria or with very poor chemical composition. Villagers cannot afford to buy drinking water and have health problems when they drink water that is not safe.

Taking Steps Toward Clean Water

Sulawesi, Indonesia

 

The Mawa community is making good progress on their ambitious project to bring water to their village in partnership with Global Hope Network International. The first phase is almost complete at the site where the spring structure for drawing up water through a pump is finished.  The next phase will be to build a water storage tank in the village and pipe the water into it from the spring.

Solving the Water Supply Issue

Sulawesi, Indonesia

 

The newly formed Mawa Transformational Community Development (TCD) committee met earlier this month to discuss their previous plans to solve the water supply problem in their village. After counting up the money that all of the families in the community had pitched in, they decided they had enough to begin their ambitious project.

Self-Sustaining Measures

Jatapara Village, India

 

This month, we taught students the value of education, one of the five focusses of Transformational Community Development (TCD). Before, students only studied in school, and after school they would usually just play. At the training, the importance of self study after school was emphasised.  Now the students concentrate on studies after school, as well as play.

Motor Pump Solves Drought Problem

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

 

This month I reminded people about health and hygiene. Some families like to buy vegetables from the market rather than growing them on their own. I talked to two such families about the difference between conventional vegetables which they eat and organic ones. They were motivated and now grow organic vegetables in their kitchen garden!

Quenching Water Within Reach

Attir Village, Kenya

 

The drilling of a bore hole in Attir Village with the help of GHNI has borne much fruit. After the villagers cried out that water was a big problem to them, we took the initiative and networked with other organisations that were willing and had the capacity to help the Attir community. Water was drilled and the problem came to an end. Fruits were seen and villagers started farming; thus, one factor of their dependency came to an end because the Attir community was no longer resigned to a pastoral lifestyle.
