In 2013 Nema installed five new water pumps in five villages – Guludo,
Naunde, Nambija, Napala and Lumuamua. As part of the agreement, the
local communities are responsible for setting up a water committees who
we train to carry out any repairs and maintenance on the pump. The pumps provide hundreds, if not thousands of litres of safe water to these communities and the heavy use means they need regular tlc. Three of the pumps needed some maintenance and last week the spare parts arrived and with the help of the committees in each village, the pumps are now as good as new. Our next task is to source the spare parts and keep a supply here so that the communities are able to take full responsibility over the management and repair of their pumps.
