This May, Mugeta villagers gathered at the local elementary school to brainstorm strategies for effective water management in anticipation of the Maji Mazuri Water Project. With great excitement, villagers shared smiles as they passed around cards made by friends from the UBC Hope for Happiness Team.
"Despite the fact that we live oceans apart, it's great to think we can still connect through the simple things like hand-written notes and a common desire to make our communities the healthiest they can be," said UBCHFH volunteer, "We are really excited about the well and we hope they are too!"
After many months of researching and negotiating, HFH has finalized quotes for a deep water well and accompanying water infrastructure. Stay tuned for more good news soon!
