About The Project

$1,955.00 needed to purchase the necessary items to install a new well

$565.00 contributed by the community

 In Liberia 25% of the population of 5 million lacks access to clean, safe drinking water. Unsafe drinking water can cause diarrhea, cholera, other water-borne illnesses and in severe cases death. With your very important investment this safe drinking water project will be able to purchase the necessary materials to install a new well, ie cement, sand, steel rods, wheel barrels, and an Afrideu hand pump. A few individuals will be hired for the project. The project will last 6 months.

Strategic Planning:

June 2021-procurement of materials

July 2021-manufactoring of concrete covers

August 2021- curing of fabricated concrete covers

September-October 2021- installation of concrete covers for the well/cleaning of the well

November 2021- conclusion and dedication of safe drinking water for the community

"If this project is completed it will bring relief to the community dwellers and its environment" from a community member. It will most importantly prevent unwanted illness and in extreme cases death

Backstory

Most of the world's available fresh water is found underground, protected from contamination. Worldwide groundwater systems provide 25%-40% of all drinking water. 49% of the US depends on groundwater. Leadership from CII’s Group 5 initiated this community-led safe drinking project. It was developed and initiated by the group. This very important safe drinking water project will impact 250 people within their community and decrease disease, infections, and death caused by drinking unsafe  water.
