Well in Ethiopia
We have been funding a well in the Ethiopian village of Guramba Bata since 2015. Through this project, we provide one litre of water for every litre of water we extract from milk in the Netherlands to produce milk powder for the African consumer market.
Until 2035, which is the expected technical lifetime of the infrastructure, we will supply at least 525 million litres of clean drinking water to some 4,000 inhabitants. The water is led to four consumption points, among which a school and a health centre. A group of people have been trained to maintain the drinking water infrastructure. Coaches have also been trained to encourage people to change their hygiene behaviour.
