Millions of people across the globe are struggling to access safe and clean water to meet their basic needs. We're here to change that one community at a time. Our first project starts in Ankober, Ethiopia.
1 ANKOBER WATER PROJECT
Ankober is a town in central Ethiopia, it's 25 miles to east of Debre Birhan and about 90 miles northeast of Addis Ababa. Within Ankober, WIHA ORG will be working in Aliyou amiba zuriya kebele wubit, Deway kebele mankole and Derfo kebele jib den which are rural villages located in North Shoa zone of Ankober woreda. The existing water source for these three villages are mostly unprotected springs, ponds and perennial rivers which are found 2.5 kilometers from their villages.
WIHA ORG will fund an upcoming community water supply, sanitation, and hygiene project in collaboration with Ankober Woreda Water and Energy Resources Development Department. The project plans to build pipelines and dig wells that would supply to aforementioned villages. The Ankober Woreda Water and Energy Resources Development Department will monitor the usage of water supply, provide proper maintenance and educate the community about proper usage.
