8,000 Gain Access to Clean Water

Samfya, Zambia — 2012 was a year of accomplishments for the Samfya water team in Zambia, who drilled 12 new wells and repaired 67 pumps.

Conservatively, 8,000 local people have gained access to clean water thanks to the work of the team. Bright Hope's in-country Partnership Developers tell us, "We're so pleased with the team. The five young men are finally functioning as team. The group is keeping very good financial records. It’s been a long five years to get the Samfya water team to where they are. They've come a long way and it’s good to see them grow and develop into a proper business."

Thank you to those who have supported our clean water initiatives in Zambia!
