Navajo Water Project - Water Delivery (50 families)

United States 200 beneficiaries

The Navajo Water Project, a program of DigDeep, is a community-managed utility alternative that brings clean, hot and cold running water to homes without access to water or sewer lines. Currently, 1 in 3 Navajo do not have access to running water in their homes. Importantly, the Navajo Water Project is Indigenous-led and supported by the leadership of community members, chapter houses, and local partners. The Navajo Water Project serves families across the Navajo Nation with teams based in Thoreau, NM; Navajo Mountain, UT; and Dilkon AZ. Traditionally, a large focus of the Navajo Water Project has been the installation of Home Water Systems, which provide running water and solar power for one home. We also develop new water sources and deliver water to homes via our water trucks. In 2020, we added 1,981 square miles to our water delivery routes! Ongoing water delivery service to homes where we have previously installed Home Water Systems (which contain a 1,200-gallon water cistern), is a vital part of our work. It ensures viability of the systems and ongoing clean, running water access. Additionally, it helps support the ongoing cost of vehicle maintenance, fuel, and insurance, keeping more trucks delivering water to our clients.

Ndese SDA Primary School

Uganda 350 beneficiaries

Ndese SDA Primary School is a boarding and day school for 350 students and staff. The school currently uses a borehole as its main water source, which it also shares with the community and the church on the grounds. The students fetch water twice per day, a total of 50 jerry cans, and local households also fetch from this borehole. By equipping Ndese SDA Primary School and the surrounding community of Kakaala LC1 with 2 rainwater collection systems, H2O for Life will release the community from its hazardous and low water supply and ensure that the members can have reliable access to safe, clean water.

Olbolet Siana Hills Academy

Kenya

Students at Olbolet Siana Hills Academy rely upon piped water from the nearby market where there is a 500L water tank. However, this source is very unreliable and often empty. They have been without water since the school year started and it will likely remain this way for several weeks, maybe even longer. When this happens, it forces students and staff to be absent while they fetch water from a nearby river, which is not safe for drinking, cooking, etc. but can only be used for cleaning and handwashing.

Uganda 577 beneficiaries

Ongai Primary School, located in Okura Village, Nwoya District, Uganda, currently has 577 students (265 girls & 312 boys). The school has had a severe lack of safe water for many years. The nearest working well is over a mile away and many children miss school because they are thirsty. The head teacher realized there was a problem, so he worked with the local community to raise money and get a nearby well rehabbed/repaired.
