|WaterAid Borehole Bobol|
The borehole has meant they can live not purely survive like the villagers in Ojolai yesterday. We saw smarter houses, happier children and a greater variety of crops and animals.

WaterAid through WASH provide a sustainable solution for the village. One of the exciting initiatives I learnt about today involved the monthly standing charge paid by the villagers for the upkeep and maintenance of the borehole. Once a surplus of funds is achieved this is lent to the villagers for business enterprise. It really is about Water-Life-Sustainability-Betterment.

For my betterment today I washed up Bobol style, milked a cow, shelled peanuts and tried to cook bread!
All this achieved in the morning as in the afternoon we were guests at Wera primary school. With a very big thank you thank you from the 800 pupils and staff to Wateraid supporters for helping them to build latrines and a borehole. The school was brighter and the children less shy than the school yesterday.
They sang and danced a good to meet you and thank you WaterAid song which was beautiful until I joined in.
