For Namangolwa and her friends being able to go to school is a dream come true. A new water point in their village means that instead of spending hours each day collecting water, they are able to regularly attend lessons.
Our goal has always been to see no-one left behind without safe water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). So, alongside our regular pump repair projects, this year we are scaling up our work on a district wide plan in Nalolo district, Zambia.
Whenever we support a community with fixing or installing a water point, our local partners always run hygiene promotion sessions and make sure that community members understand the importance of washing hands to prevent disease.
Stanley Zawa has a dream. After watching the pump in his village being rehabilitated, he was inspired and told us about his plans for the future.
