“Verily the first thing to be rewarded on the day of resurrection will be the providing of water” (Imam Al Baqir)
Rural areas in Tanzania have severe shortage of clean water. The locals have to use stagnant contaminated water for their survival. Statistics show that, 23 million people in Tanzania do not have access to safe water. Typically, women and children spend over two hours a day collecting water, and up to seven hours in remote areas. These issues have a big impact on health, with over 4,000 children under the age of five dying each year from preventable diarrhoea relateddiseases caused by poor water and sanitation.
KAI has managed to dig 20 hand dug shallow wells in and around Arusha region. Each well costs approximately 1.2million tshs, this is inclusive of installing a water pump and reservoir tank. Each shallow well can give up to 20,000 litres of water per day.
There are some areas around Arusha that are so dry that there is no underground water source; for such areas, we supply water through our own 2 water boozers and supply 10,000 liters of water per trip.
