Impact of The Alara Water Project
The project supports about many households within the area with about 3,000 people. A few primary schools which are situated within the locality have pupils who benefit directly from drinking water from the project while they are in school. The area is not served by any piped water and most of the community members get their water from the lake which is untreated. Other members of the community get their water from roof catchment which cannot take them throughout the year.
