Problem: What problem is this initiative trying to address?
Water supply has been a challenge to rural communities especially clean sustainable water. Rural communities are often times poised with this huge challenge thus, forcing rural populace to walk miles sometimes kilometres to access water which might not be safe for them.
This project targets communities with emphasis on Ihitte community of South Eastern Nigeria, which is faced with inadequate/No water supply, bad roads and inadequate power supply
Solution Summary: What is the proposed solution? What do you see as its most promising aspects for creating shared value?
Effective and efficient measures geared towards ensuring sustainable distribution of clean water should be seriously adhered and judiciously adopted in order to save rural communities from this challenge with a measure to educate rural dwellers on the need for clean water consumption.
