Together with the local church, Anglican Aid is helping people in Nyagisenyi get clean water. Local partners will identify 22 springs that will be protected, so that they can be a reliable source of clean water. Locals will be trained to maintain the improved springs, and learn sanitation practices which prevent disease.

The effect of clean water does not stop with a reduction of disease. It reduces medical costs and strengthens the labor force, decreasing the economic burden that sickness often brings to households. School attendance and performance will be improved as children will no longer walk long distances looking for clean water. This is especially important for women and girls as culturally, water collection often falls to women and children. It will strengthen community cohesion by ending potential conflicts over scarce water. 

Through your support, churches in Burundi will provide their communities with life-giving clean water in the name of Jesus.
