Many of the villagers make a living breeding poultry and cultivating vegetables.
The rusty pipes make water undrinkable.

Villagers volunteer to transform the village.

“When I saw tap water in my household, I cried. I have built this house and raised three children. You can image how much water I have carried for food, washing and other necessities over the years,” she says.

Aculina Girnet enjoys clean water in her household.

The initiative has improved the quality of life for everyone.
