The biggest success I've seen in our programme was seeing people turn around a project that began by providing an emergency water supply, and turning into a project which enabled the local community to earn an income.
Initially, a borehole was drilled at a school to provide clean water during the cholera epidemic of 2008. Since then, however, the school has managed to construct a greenhouse which is providing enough tomatoes to generate on average $1,000 after harvest - funds which are then channelled to develop the school and maintain the water point. It's like a huge pat on the back for our project!
