In its effort to promote a better living standard for rural communities, WOFAN constructs water supply system in five local government Areas of Sokoto. The project co-funded by WOFAN and USAID, was monitored up to completion, to ensure a access to better hygiene and sanitation facilities. The LGAs are Bodinga, Kware, Shagari,Silame and Wammako.
The construction comprises of boreholes, hand pumps; concrete slab and drains. The people in the areas have already started using the Boreholes after they have been tested. Hundreds of thousands in the local government areas have now access to safe drinking water. This will reduce the level of hydro illnesses, mortality rate, mainly among children, as well as the improvement of sanitation and hygiene in the communities, among other benefits.
In another development, WOFAN also constructed Ventilated Improved Pit( VIP) Latrines with rain harvesters for hand washing for Schools and Clinics in the same local government areas. This helps reduce health hazards and improve quality of community health and hygiene. In their contribution, the community members dig pit for the latrines.
