Nyagisenyi is located in an extremely remote and hilly area of Burundi, meaning that it would be a very difficult, expensive and slow process for the community to be supplied with public water. In order to address these issues, Anglican Aid is working with local partners to identify 22 springs that will be improved and protected, so that they can be a reliable source of clean water. Alongside this building process, training will be provided to local partners to equip them for the maintenance of the improved springs as well as in harnessing the potential of clean water and sanitation to 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 is often attributed to women and children. It will strengthen the cohesion of the community and bond between community members as it will end any prospective conflicts over water. 

Through your support, this project will provide communities in Burundi with a basic human need that we often take for granted.
