Ndungu Kebbeh Water Project – The Gambia

Ndungu Kebbeh, Jokadu, North Bank, The Gambia

Community Description
The village of Ndungu Kebbeh is located in the district of Jokadu in the North Bank Region of The Gambia.

The project is located in a neighborhood on the outskirts of the village center. Physically it is separated from the larger community by two school properties: the Koranic school and the “English” school.

There are 12 compounds in the area, currently housing about 170 persons. All the compounds are clustered together in an area bordered on one side by the school’s grounds and on the other by the millet and groundnut fields.

Currently the people are drawing water from an open well in one of the compounds. They have only infrequent and irregular access to taps when the schools are open.

Project Description
This project is to make water available to the people living in the compounds by running piping from the school water supply to a conveniently accessible location.

The system will begin with piping to a location outside the school fence, with water accessed from a single tap. However, it will be built with expansion in mind, so that when additional funds become available, it can be extended to a distance of 500 meters, with three taps.

The community will provide the labor of digging and laying the pipe.

Project Impact
170 people will benefit from this project.
