Objective of the Project: The objective of this project is to provide a conveniently located borehole within five of some poor communities in Kwara State, Nigeria, that will enable villagers to obtain clean, disease-free water for their drinking, cooking, cleaning and general hygiene.
Accessibility to clean water is a major problem in many communities located in Kwara State. This has led to spread of diseases such as diarrhea, dysentery, typhoid and has resulted in the death of many women and children. We have identified and selected five communities where we propose to improve that accessibility, namely; Koro Gurumoh, Eyenkorin, The original settlers of fate/tanke, Abandoned Kwara state stadium and the Hausa community sango area.
