Location: Baka Dawla Ari Woreda in Kaysa Kebele

Project title: Solar-powered potable water Solutions for Kaysa Town (SPPWS)

Summary: In Kaysa town, over 94 % of the population don’t have access to potable water which is seen as a leading cause for many diseases. Due to high operational costs of existing (deep) wells and the destruction of water distribution lines, this project wants to introduce a solar-powered water pumping system to replace expensive diesel generators. Additionally, on the compound of the pumping station a vegetable garden and nursery site will be established to support the most vulnerable community members who will also be able to earn an income from selling vegetables and seedlings.
