You can help families in Chano Dorga

HOPE International Development Agency UK is presently raising funds to provide clean water for chano dorga, a village in southern Ethiopia.

Since 2010 HOPE has provided clean water to 81,000 people in the Bonke district of southern Ethiopia, bringing safe water access up to 53%. However, we have more to do! Helping families access clean, nearby water is a simple solution to many problems. Mothers and children can have improved health, increased access to education, increased ability to grow more food & increased time for pursing income generating activities when they do not need to spend hours each day collecting non-potable water.

Clean water can change everything for Chano Dorga. This project will cap 2 nearby springs to provide water for their daily use, and more than enough as the village grows in the future. Together, HOPE and the community will lay 14.3 km of pipeline, and will build 2 water reservoirs, 15 water points, and 11 wash basins. The arrival of local, safe water will bring improved health and increased time for schooling and pursuing income generating opportunities. A new future will then be possible.

HOPE will work alongside the community for 2 years to ensure that the whole village is fully supported. In total, 3,900 people will benefit from clean water, as well as 2 schools and 1 health post. In addition to forming a local water committee and training water system caretakers, 400 women will also have the opportunity to further improve their lives and livelihoods by joining self-help groups where they will learn new business skills, increase personal savings, and start a small business.

With your help, clean water can end this.
