Most of the beneficiaries I have met have expressed their relief at not having to drink the town Well water anymore and how much the tanks have positively impacted on their lives.

The benefits they have listed included:

1- Having access to clean drinking and cooking water
2 - Improvement to their children's health, less cases of eye-infections, less complains by their children about stomach problems
3 - Not having to walk for 30km to fetch water that was too salty to drink
4 - New opportunity to make a living from selling water
