 Introduction

 

Technological innovation and adaptation are integral to many of the water-saving measures, service extensions and sanitation system improvements that are urgently required in developing countries. Technical issues largely determine the costs of a given water-related project, and thus choosing the right technology is of paramount importance for the successful completion and sustainability of the project.

Check out Tessa Livingstone's disturbing new video on the crisis of water supply. Why, after $360 million of investment do nearly a billion people still lack healthy water? Why do the wells, pumps and pipes, installed lovingly by donors across the world, fail time and time again? And who now has the courage to put it right?

Senegal: Access to Water is Transforming Life in Rural Areas

Submitted by Celine Dondeynaz on 5 August, 2010 - 16:33

Darou Ngaraf - 26 July 2010 available on Allafrica.com

Kalla Niang, 12, is highly self assured and energetic. She is busily
preparing herself for high school, an opportunity that, until recently,
would not have been available to her. She lives in the village of Darou
Ngaraf in northern Senegal.

Like many girls in rural Senegal, Kalla and her sisters are
responsible for many daily chores, including drawing water from a
communal well that is located far from their village.

"My sisters and I had to rise before dawn to fetch water, and we were
very often late for school," she said. "We always arrived very tired
because drawing and carrying water is not easy."

Lack of energy and time for an education was not the only danger that
Kalla and the other villagers faced by not having access to a reliable
source of water. Drawing water from unregulated sources of water put
them at risk of diarrhoea and malaria.
