Donkeys can carry up to 6X more water. This decreases the risk of physical injury from carrying water on their heads and young girls can spend more time in school, not fetching water all day – a more efficient and safe process.
We will restore the 9 broken water pumps and train community leaders to become water operators. These water operators will ensure that their newly restored pumps remain in proper working condition. The 9 restored water pumps will provide clean water to 10,000 people in La Montagne.
SAWYER WATER FILTERS
Sawyer water filters have a 99.99999% removal rate, which makes it impossible for any bacteria, protozoa or cysts to pass through. One filter alone can provide 1 million gallons of clean, safe water and can supply enough water for 100 people.
