Apart from improving access to safe
drinking water and food, the vegetation by the well has improved significantly. Pawpaw trees have sprung up with good produce
(left picture above) and the surrounding environment is richly covered with vegetation including Sugar cane. Next Step: The community plans to sink more shallow
wells to ensure equitable distribution and access to safe drinking water in the area. Construction of wells in other corners
of the village will enhance community participation.
The second project that the community successfully
accomplished was the rehabilitation of a dam that had silted (left picture in the box below).The pictures below show members
at work de-silting the dam.
Two years later the dam has kept water through out the drought season
and the environment is recovering pretty fast as seen in the picture below. To prevent further silting the Dam has been fenced.
Lately the villagers have introduced fish (fresh water – Tilapia) farming at the dam and bee keeping has been introduced
within the enclosure.
