After identifying a new sustainable water project, the Trust makes the quick decision to proceed and founder Emma Hodgkins helps to start building our first water tower.

This large project will give clean water to 4,000 people, taking the water from a spring thus utilising the natural supply of water in the area. It involves:

  • Digging the foundations
  • Fitting the electric pump
  • Laying the pipes
  • Building the tower
  • Installing the tank and taps
  • Fitting the filter

When finished, there will be safe, clean water for this community.

Emma said "Working in the heat is hard work and everything is done manually. What should be simple is really hard work".
