Bambama is a remote village without electricity and clean water. The locality has five Water Wells. However, since three years, four of the five Wells were broken. Fresh from my YALI experience, I wanted to use the leadership skills I learned from my training on community mobilization to fix the three broken Wells.
With the financial help of the local Senator, I managed to secure the funding needed to buy the missing pieces to fix the Wells. Once the pieces were bought, I gather local young volunteers to fix the Wells. After two days of repair, we managed to repair three of the four broken Wells.
Now, Students from the elementary and middle School have access to water. One of the Wells we repaired is situated near the local hospital; which means patients from the hospital now have access to water as well.
Our goal is to train two volunteers in the maintenance of Wells. The two volunteers will be responsible for the maintenance and replacement of broken pieces for all the wells in the district.
