This community of 3,500 currently collects drinking water from a well five miles away - a time-consuming, arduous, and dangerous task. For cooking, washing clothes, and livestock, the community utilizes a nearby body of water called the "Red Dam," which is a cause of many waterborne illnesses.
A school serving more than 300 students was just completed in Lenjani by "Privilege to Serve" and supported by NFL coach Anthony Lynn. However, the community's lack of clean water threatens the school's success.
But, with the help of Africas Promise Village and other groups dedicated to this community's development, Well Aware will implement a sustainable clean water system in Lenjani to support the school and the futures of all 3,500 community members.
