‘We want to share with you the benefits of having this water fountain here in Mahwane, on the hills of Rusaka.
It is great progress for citizens living on the surroundings hills as they didn’t have access to potable water
Citizen of this part of the commune no longer have to go to the river to fetch water. They can just get it here.
They get clean water. Those going to the market as well will stop here to get clean water. Other will collect the water for household usage.
Households are clean and people are healthier because we have this water fountain.
Clean water is a rare commodity for most people, which is why we are grateful that someone has thought of building such a project near us.
This water also helps at the school
There is a school for our children starting from Kindergarten for small children. The water helps them stay clean, and have drinkable water while they are at school
They even use it to keep the classrooms cleans.
More school are being built. We will have a technical school in the days to come. The students that will attend the school will also have access to clean and drinkable water.
They will not have to go to the river to fetch water as they were used to.
Before having this water fountain, we only had access to very dirty water which was a big problem
We contracted illnesses from uncleanliness
We are very grateful for this project and those who came up with this initiative.’
