Access to Energy and Water
UPENDO LIVELIHOODS provides water related equipment and services including well drilling, water pumps, and water filtering to help provide safe drinking water. The water is also used for food production (crops, livestock, and fisheries), preparation, and processing.
Water is cored collected from rooftops and stored in ferro-cement jars. The jars are suitable for areas with seasonal heavy rains followed by a long dry spell and no reliable source of water for domestic use or irrigated home gardens. The jars reduce the burden of collecting water and save time used for other productive purposes.
