This project came to us via our web site, proving its worth. 

We assumed that Sekhukhune District would quickly give us the go ahead to add Lepelle community water project to the long list that we have already done for them. It was impossible to get anyone to give us a positive response, so after four months of frustration we moved the project to Mopani District. To Nwamankena village a village severally affected by the lack of water in the middle Letaba Dam. 

Overview of project

An isolated rural village does not have adequate access to drinking water.

The village’s hygiene needs are not met either. There is need for both training in hygiene and water management as well as infrastructure, such as VIP toilets and water systems. 

Tsogang’s solution is to go to the community and work with them to find approaches to these problems. It is essential that any solution involve the use of technologies that are appropriate to the target community and that the community has ownership over the water and sanitation projects.

The solution will include training in health issues for the community, building a water reticulation system and VIP toilets, as well as training community members to carry out these tasks.
