The community of Kavuthu had lived solely off of water from a river 4 kilometers away. The water was full of coliform, making the kids very sick and unable to attend school regularly.
The community now has a new rainwater collection system, complete with a UV filtration system and large water collection tanks. This system serves all 4,000 members of this community.
