We appreciated both the teams, so different in their agendas but so similar in showing their love and compassion for Grand Goâve.
We were very pleased to have the opportunity, between teams, to visit the community of Monthabort an hour’s journey up the mountain from GG. We are looking at ways we can help with water in this area. Unfortunately it is not possible to drill a well here, but rain catchment was a possibility. Since we first explored the possibilities in this area the church has been rebuilt and a community hall has also be built, nearby, giving them two large buildings to gutter and harvest rainwater from. With the success of our rainwater project at Siloë, a similar system in Monthabort, with the local people supplying their own labor and CBF providing the materials is another blessing for the community as a whole. This is the sort of project we can use our partnerships with WASH to achieve, and our SHGs, to promote good hygiene and safe water practices.
