Project: To drill a borehole well in Manakabo Community, Taraba State, Nigeria, to combat the illnesses caused by lack of clean drinking water.
This borehole well project will address the potable water challenge of Manakabo Community. Their main water source is from a stream, though other sources include seasonal rain water, open shallow wells and stagnant ponds. The river’s water quality is very poor and not suitable for drinking. It causes sicknesses, including diarrhea, cholera, skin infections and typhoid.
Having a borehole for the community will drastically reduce the chances of getting infected by these waterborne diseases spread from the river and other unfit sources. It will provide cleaner and portable water for domestic use, especially for drinking.
