안전한 식수와 화장실 설치하는 WASH 프로젝트

2006.11.17
In the villages of Niger it is the women and girls’ responsibility to seek water for their family’s needs. This task has become much easier for Ayu Yaou, who is now able to fetch safe drinking water from a nearby fountain that is supplied by this solar powered pump. Ayu also heads the village water committee that manages the water system. Soundbite (Hausa) Ayu Yaou, mother and head of Water Committee: “Our burden is a lot less because we don’t have to walk for hours to collect water that is now available in the village. The water quality is improved significantly and it is now drinkable. Our children are healthier.” The solar powered water system in Guidan Gazobi was installed by UNICEF and supplies safe drinking water to 3010 people. It is monitored and maintained by women in the community. Sixty-four percent of people in rural Niger do not have access to safe drinking water. They rely on stagnant pools of water for drinking, cleaning and washing. As a result, water-borne diseases, lack of hygiene and inadequate sanitation perpetuate a cycle of poverty and malnutrition in children. Now Ayu can provide a more sanitary environment for her daughter Raykia. She also has one less obstacle to overcome and may focus her attention on other income generating activities and caring for her daughters. Soundbite: (French) Anne Ouedraogo, UNICEF program assistant: “Since they had this system their chores are less time consuming and reduction of the waterborne diseases has been significant.” UNICEF has so far supported the construction and rehabilitation of 44 boreholes and 28 cemented wells in Niger. The Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Program adheres to the concept that easing the lives of women and children benefits the entire community. With access to safe drinking water and improved basic sanitation practices, the life and health of Raykia, and other children is greatly improved. This is Nina Martinek reporting for UNICEF television.
