Dangini is a wife and mother of two sons. Before her community received sustainable water points, her region struggled with high rates of diarrheal and skin diseases. Many families didn’t have their own latrines for safe hygiene practices, leading to contamination of available groundwater. Danigini reported, “We had to wake up at 5am and walk over half a mile to use the bathroom.” Most of her time was spent collecting water, which was especially dangerous during the rainy season. After investing in a piped system with household water points, everything changed. Finally, women had time to thrive; some even planted gardens. “We are grateful to have water in our homes,” said Dangini.
Clean water brings health to communities once weakened by disease, gives children access to the education they deserve, and restores families’ hope in the future through economic empowerment. Promise Hill Project is honored to have been able to contribute to such an impactful and ongoing water project.
