Likoswe Village has struggled with dirty water for a long time.


Community Problem: Many people in Likoswe struggle with waterborne illness, and a local girl was raped after leaving the village to fetch water by herself from a stream.


Community Solution: Likoswe has contributed construction materials and over $400 of its own money -- a HUGE sum for people living on less than two dollars a day. A reputable and trusted well drilling company will complete the project for $7,000, about three thousand dollars less than the market price for such projects. The drilling company applied the discount because Likoswe is organizing the project for itself, not relying on an outside organization. International money transfer fees account for the remaining cost.


Partners: Water Charity & National Peace Corps Association


Outcome: clean water for the village
