Hello GoGetFunding family? Thanks in advance for taking time off your busy schedule to read this post and significantly for bridging the isolation we do live in. We humbly appeal for your support towards drilling a borehole for Ouswa community, Kajiado county. There is acute shortage of access to safe drinking water supply which may result to Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene crisis within the next few days if not managed.
Vast of Kajiado county is Arid and Semi Arid Land, which is considered marginalized due to its unproductive nature resulting from heavy drought. For the past decade the area has experienced severe drought, forcing thousands of families move long distance in search of water and pasture. This has exposed the community to harshness, hunger, school dropouts, and perennial conflicts. The situation has worsened with season rivers and shallow wells dug in over decades ago drying up.
We have conducted a comprehensive groundwater investigation, with three sites marked as promising locations for drilling the borehole. Acquisition of relevant legislation is expected to commence immediately the funds as the permissions are time bound.
This is a brief details of the project
- Project Budget: £32,000
- Project details: (Drilling, equipping, water trough, water kiosk, and tank)
- Donations/support so far: (Tank, water trough, and Geophysical survey)
NGO's in WASH field are in fact encouraged for partnership.
We kindly plead for your donation to facilitate the provision of safe drinking water. We possibly think of building a latrine, wash rooms and school washing places if the campaign runs successful.
We warmly welcome your contribution. Thanks
