In March 2022 TDT paid 3,100,000/TZ/- ( £990) to Womens Change Initiative to complete an improved water source for the village of Pwela in the Rukwa region. 1,000 villagers benefited from this project, and the work was completed in May 2022.
The benefits are manifold, and include improved access to water for 1000 villagers. In addition, the water source is now cleaner and more hygienic, leading to a reduction in water-borne diseases. This means it is also safer for children to collect water. Finally, men are more likely to fetch water because of the improved source.
