The activities under this project are aimed in improving access to water, improving sanitary conditions, raising awareness about the methods and techniques of protecting water sources against the negative effects of atmospheric changes. Two schools will be equipped with rainwater collection systems and water tanks. Furthermore, we organise trainings in maintaining proper hygiene. For the civil servants of the counties on whose territories the project will be carried out we will organise risk management workshops (DDR). As part of the project we will create four sand dams, each equipped with a shallow well. One of the communities will be furnished with a solar-powered water distribution system that will enable cultivation of home gardens. These activities will improve the level of employment and work effectiveness of local farmers. As a result aid will be provided to 5670 people.
