We are so excited to partner with LifeSaver® to provide purified water to all the residents of Kolunga. Alphonce, Magdalene and the community have had many meetings to determine exactly what they need and convenient placement for all the residents. The teams from 3K plus V and Center For Alternative Technology have worked diligently to provide us the best, most efficient, cost effective products for the job. The "fundis" (builders) have begun the digging of the foundation. The LifeSaver® unit is safely stored at Mark Ross' house and all the other essential elements are arriving in the village.
The most critical part of the project that will make these efforts successful, the education factor, has also begun. When you live
on a lake it's hard to understand why you can't just use the water all around you. Teaching the residents about the need for the purified water is the first step. Understanding that clean water eliminates disease is a huge part of actually making the system work.
