We focus on one region at a time
You know the phrase, “The only way to eat an elephant is one bite at a time”? That’s how we have approached implementing and sustaining clean water in the Central African Republic.
By dividing the country into “focus regions”, which are specific areas where we have counted all the people and mapped out their needs. Since there hasn’t been a census in the country in years, we really have to start from scratch. We can’t just rush in and start drilling wells but need to know how many people live in the area, how many wells are needed, and the best geological placement for the new wells.
