The percentage of households who can collect water from a clean and sustainable source all year round rose from 17% to 90% and the percentage of households with unhygienic toilets fell from 73% to 28%, a fantastic result!
Some of the major achievements include:
- 11 Rainwater harvesting systems installed in schools
- 14 improved toilet blocks in schools
- 78 natural springs capped
- 3 gravity-fed water systems installed
Stratco are currently working with World Vision to find another great project to assist with.
