KAPKESEMBE VILLAGE

Normal water collecting: donkey, plastic containers and a long walk 4 times a day. With a bore hole (water well) the villagers watched and anticipated clean water (tilibei) for the first time in 2012. Because of the water a Christian school, Tilibei "Bud" Academy, was built that year. In 2015 there was a headmaster, 10 teachers and over 250 students.  

 

Bore Hole

The drilling of the bore hole will bring new training for the villagagers as part of the plan initiated by WiL ministry. There will be education for the school children in sanitation and hygiene. Latrine artisans will be trained   and the women will learn about soap making. The Water Council will be responsible for the bore hole and helping the community to take ownership of the long awaited clean water.

 Water Council

In 2014 AWW sent a friend from the US to Kapkesembe. There she met with the village chief, John, and a team was formed. The existing group today: Wesley, David, Joseph, "Professor", Gladys, Emma, Anthony, Meliza, Robert, Janet and Erick (missing). The council makes decisions regarding the collecting of fees and all related water issues.

 The Dispensary

 This is the hub of the village and meetings   are held in one of the small rooms. It is open  three times a week for villagers to receive medical help. Land has been purchased for the building of a Resource Center for the village.
