Checking in on the Lalambe well

We have received a further update from our recent clean water well project in Lalambe, Tanzania.

As the pictures show, the well is fully in use and working well. The community in Lalambe now has access to safe, clean drinking water. The young people especially are protected from disease and no longer have to travel long distances to fetch water. Girls and women in this community are safer and have more time to dedicate to schooling and income-generating activities.

The technology used to make this well was perfected locally by Benedict Hosea and his team at the local youth-led organisation Mboni ya Vijana. It’s another great example of how a small amount of capital can amplify the local innovation that already exists.
