Unape Alewa community Abuja has no access to clean sources of water, people fetch water from a dirty river where cattle also come to drink and defecate, leading to waterborne diseases among the community. The river that the community fetches water from has exposed the people to water related problems, it has caused severe illness and the deaths of some children in the community. The women in the community walk several miles to fetch water from the dirty river for their entire household. This takes up their productive time. They spend more time fetching water than focusing on their work and family.
The funds raised will help achieve clean water projects in the community. With access to clean water child mortality rate will reduce and the hours spent by women to fetch water will be channeled to other productive activities The project will directly benefit everyone in the community. The project will promote effective hygiene promotion messages in the community and institutional environments, respectively. The local residents will be equipped with knowledge of water, sanitation, and hygiene. It is projected to reduce the amount of distance traveled as well as the time taken to fetch consumable water by each household in Unape Alewa village and thus improve their standard of living. With no more shortage of consumable water close by, women and children will also have more time they can spend on other productive activities rather than trekking distances to access water.
