Providing access to safe water
Opportunities for Life is a small personal project with a HUGE passion by very two dedicated young induviduals.
783 MILLION PEOPLE DONT HAVE ACCESS TO CLEAN DRINKING WATER – THAT’S ROUGHLY 1 IN 10 OF THE WORLDS POPULATION
- 345 Million people in Africa don’t have access to water
- Unsafe drinking water is the main cause of sickness and death in Africa
- The average distance a woman or young girl has to walk each day to collect water is 6km
- Every 20 seconds a child dies from a water related disease
Opportunities for Life are proud to announce that they have chosen a specific location for their 2014 water well project.
NYAKUDYA VILLAGE – ZIMBABWE
Nyakudya Village is a small and remote village located North East of Harare. OFL will be supplying clean and safe water to over 500 people.
The conditions are poor- the community, in particular the women & children have to walk over 4km each way to collect water from a surrounding village. There are two basic schools in the community- and Nyakudya Primary School is going to be the exact location of our project.By installing a water pump in the primary school- this will allow us to:
EDUCATE- Children & the community
MONITOR – The pump in a safe environment
MAINTAIN – by the community to ensure it’s a sustainable project
The people of Nyakudya previously attempted to dig their own well for water. The water was too deep & the conditions were too dry for any man to dig manually. Danielle & Micheal cannot wait to give the people of Nyakudya Village the water that deserve and change the lives of so many for now and into the future…..
To help us make a difference for Nyakudya Village & donate, please click on the ‘Donate’ button at the top of the page. 100% of all donations are put towards the costs of the project- which means your donation- no matter how big or small – will be making a direct impact.
By providing access to safe water, we are providing opportunities for improved education, health, & agricultural economic growth leading to a sustainable future for life
