Access to clean drinking water improves health – essentially of small children – and allows women to safe time for other activities. During the dry season, many use the well water for small scale vegetable gardening; they improve the diet of the household and can even generate some income. Therefore SWISSAID supports the construction of water wells and boreholes as well as community water supply.
