Well rehabilitation and tank installation at Idundilanga dispensary in Njombe town
Since December 2020, the dispensary and the community of Idundilanga are benefitting from an improved access to water thanks to a project carried out by SHIPO with the support of AUARA.
The existing well was deepened to ensure that both the community and the dispensary have enough water throughout the year. While the community members continue fetching water with the rope pump, the dispensary counts with its own system: water was brought to the dispensary by building a tower for the new tank and by connecting the submersible pump to the tank and this one to the inlet to the dispensary.
The project has been a success, as highlighted by many of the stakeholders present during the Handing Over ceremony at Idundilanga. The community played their role by providing the local materials and one of the groups trained by SHIPO was responsible for the works.
Thanks to all the people involved in the project, hongereni sana!
