The Ledia Water Project is a huge feat which will provide clean water for the entire city of Gemena as well as training in proper sanitation and hygiene. Recently, our team was able to spend time visiting future water sites in the area as well as hear from the World Vision team on how they are engaging the community and implementing the work.

This project will provide:

  • Water Testing – Each viable water source will be tested to be certain the water is clean and that the source will continue to provide water, even during the dry season.
  • Capping of Springs – A ‘spring box’ will be built to capture and contain water, to avoid contamination from agricultural runoff, rain water, and animal or human waste. This is a cost-effective way to provide drinking water to individual homes as well as the entire community.
  • Education – Teaching effective sanitation and hygiene is important for the community of Gemena to manage and care for the WASH systems being put into place. Education will ensure the continued health of the water sources and the community.

Check out the video below as we visited with one of the water engineers currently working on this project.
