Community Water Assessment
Volunteers will study the community to understand the community’s current water challenges and learn how the new system will address those issues. Volunteers meet with the community’s Water Committee to discuss how they will be collecting water fees and maintaining the new system.
Water System Construction
Volunteers work alongside community members and trained technicians to construct a portion of a large scale clean water system. Construction mainly includes trench digging and pipe installation. A fully completed water project requires the hard work and collaboration of multiple brigade groups and community members over several months.
Volunteers present education workshops to primary school children by collaborating with members of the community’s Basic Sanitation Committee. These topics include themes such as hygiene practices, safe water storage, water conservation, and watershed protection.
Water System Design
Water Brigades may also include extra days to help the evaluation of potential water systems in new community partners and participate in the follow-up assessment of previously completed water systems.
