Water, Schools and Health Care | April 30, 2012
We are happy to announce that the Dube Bute village now has clean water, new school buildings and vastly improved access to health care. In addition, this remote community now has improved roads and a new bridge into town, which increases access to the main road – an important element in growing the local economy. With so many new projects in place, Dube Bute is thriving!
There are now 12 sources of clean water throughout the community, including three new wells and nine springs that have been tapped to store and distribute clean water across the village. With an additional five wells still under construction, even more of the Dube Bute community will have access to clean water. One project is located on the school grounds and is providing students with clean water throughout the school day for the first time.
Dube Bute’s old mud schools have been replaced by eight brand new classrooms that provide a clean, well-lit learning environment. New desks in the classrooms mean that students will no longer have to sit huddled on mud floors.
In addition to constructing a new health post that is improving health care delivery in Dube Bute, Glimmer renovated the old health post into living quarters for the village’s health extension workers. We also built a brand new vet clinic. Since many families here depend on their animals for survival, this clinic will provide much-needed vaccines and treatment for livestock.
