Big pipe – big success!

After three months, The Big Pipe Project has finally reached its goal of bringing safe, clean water to the village of Adi Sibhat in Ethiopia!

Since November, we've been sharing the community's journey as they built a gravity water flow scheme to bring safe water to their village for the first time.

Before the gravity flow system was built, people relied on an unprotected spring for their drinking water. Now, safe water is available close to home.

Just before Ethiopian Christmas Day in early January, the taps were finally turned on in Adi Sabhat. You can see the special moment for yourself here:
