Ebe community was the first village SSAI partnered with and co-developed into a Joy Village. In partnership with the UK Department for International Development (DFID), SSAI started with the creation of the “Liquid Love” water project. Today, clean, free water from a 480-foot borehole is pumped and piped along 25 kilometers of pipeline to more than 18,000 people in Ebe Community. This project eliminated the 6 month of the year draughts experienced by local residents and has ended the need for women and children in Ebe walking many miles a day to provide water for their families.
Additionally, 4 boreholes with hand pumps were drilled for 5 communities in Gwagwalada, in Abuja Federal Capital Territory (Paiko, Goyi, Gofinda, Old Kaste and New Kaste). Before the boreholes were installed, all of these communities experienced heavy droughts and endemic parasitic diseases as a result of drinking contaminated (mud) water.
