The C2C Water Initiative involves latrine construction in one community and a four phase gravity fed, Water Distribution System in our Mountainside Partner Community that will provide them with access to clean, potable water. The terrain consists of numerous ridges, peaks and valleys, which makes gathering water, mainly by women and children, at the local springs a challenging and time-consuming task.
PHASE 1: COMPLETED
Locate a water source and build a captage (water catchment structure) to surround and secure the spring.
PHASE 2: COMPLETED
Excavate an area on the mountaintop to support a large water tank-reservoir.
Construct a pump house; complete with solar panels and batteries that will pump water to a nearby mountaintop.
Residents will be expected to pay a small fee for their water, the revenue of which will then go to the community water board for system maintenance and long-term development goals.
