Multiple Uses of Water in the North

We worked with the Margaret A Cargill Foundation in the north of the country to improve sustainable access to safe drinking water and sanitation, improve the use of water sources for food security, and build capacity to respond to socio-economic and environmental shocks. Achievements included giving 134,000 people access to drinking water by equipping boreholes, repairing pumps, installing water management committees and training municipal technicians. AKF also funded small producers to grow corn, trained and equipped women’s market gardening groups, educated communities on sanitary and hygienic practices, and helped municipalities increase their capacity to prepare for and respond to disasters.
