A big part of PACHEDO’s project “WASH up!” is the training of local craftsmen in the necessary skills to ensure operation and maintenance of the water supply infrastructure. With the assistance from the City of Vienna and DKA PACHEDO was able to give interested community members the knowledge and practical skills to repair hand pumps. As the practical part of the training 5 boreholes in Bala sub-county were repaired to keep them operational for many years to come. A safe, reliable water source in the vicinity of the households is a significant factor in improving health, reducing poverty, promoting gender equality and supporting education.
