The Energy To Go forward
The Akuoro community is an energetic and welcoming community with a population of 1,500. As a community, they have never had a clean water source and have welcomed us to work with them and develop a solution together. There is one hand pump well 2 km (1.2 miles) away at the closest school but is relied on by all of the communities in the area. With so many people using the well, it goes dry for 5 months out of the year. When that occurs, the next closest water source is 5-7 km (3.2 miles) away. Together, we will develop a solution that works for them.
