The project was to renovate the spring that provides water for drinking and cooking for the community.

Matthew reports:

Cenac’s spring renovation project progressed smoothly, and Appropriate Projects funds were key to implementing the project goals.

This project was to renovate the spring where half of Cenac’s residents get their cooking and drinking water. Appropriate Projects funds were used to improve the sanitation of the spring. Specifically, the funds were used for tiling the interior floor and walls, replacing piping and purchasing a spigot to regulate water flow.

After we received the funds, local donors contributed money to strengthen the integrity of the spring’s housing structure, construct a fence around the spring itself, and build a stairwell to provide easier access. Villagers will also plant trees and a garden within the fenced-in area.

This extremely important project is the pride of the community, and locals have been impressed with what can be achieved through hard work and a small amount of well-spent funds. Local enthusiasm was palpable, and community leaders are hoping to harness that for future development projects.

On behalf of our community, I’ve been asked to thank your organization for recognizing the importance of the project and helping us achieve a sustainable solution to an important local issue!

We extend our thanks to Matthew for completing this project, and again wish to thank Matthew’s friends and family for providing the funding.
