Report: Water Management Committees
This spring we invested time and money to train the management committees of our nine deep well projects.
We covered topics like setting water prices, budgeting, record keeping, and conflict resolution.
We then moved out of the classroom into the field for a hands-on diesel generator operation maintenance and troubleshooting session. The Lenkiloriti borehole committee hosted us and proudly showed off their well-maintained, clean generator and generator house.
When Water is Life Kenya hands over projects to the community after completing the drilling, equipping and construction works, we train our water management committees. As projects evolve, however, committee members move on, so there is need to train again. In addition, our new projects committees needed review of key lessons.
