Clean water for 95 families

Community water development project

Poverty at Siphocosini is directly linked to the lack of clean water. The new water system that is financed by sahee gives access to clean drinking water for 95 families. Diseases linked to polluted water will be drastically reduced. At the same time improved access to water allows for a limited production of healthy food in backyard gardens and some communal gardens. After the completion of the water system by late 2007 the community will be trained in the management of the system. Sahee’s partner organization will also train groups of residents in forming saving- and credit-clubs, will be assisting people to build latrines and teach about infection with diseases.
