Piped water has reached Mayega village for the first time this century! A pipe has been laid the last 5km and standpipes constructed. We received a video clip on 24th January showing a running tap. The pressure was low but the technicians are working on that.
Big congratulations must go to District Water Engineer Mohamed Yamlinga and his team, for all their hard work. The potential is there now to develop facilities in the Children’s Centre, school and village. Work is going on with the Rotary Club of Elgin to those ends. Volunteers, Arnold and Valerie Barrow are in Tanzania at present, with connecting the mains into the Centre on their work plan – subject to sufficient water pressure. After that, they will move on to arranging kitchen construction. Again, teamwork is bearing fruit.
