The major issue bordering the people of Sabo community in Bichi Local Government Area of Kano State is lack of clean and drinkable water.
This issue was addressed by SI4DEV through PARTNER HEZEKIAH MBA IBRAHIM by making available 1 (one) manual borehole that is providing the entire community with a clean and consumable water; the installation lasted for a period of 1 (one) week which was completed upon.
The lack of clean water in Sabo community has been a lingering problem as the government, organizations or personal individuals have neglected the community in terms of providing an infrastructure that will make good water available for the people.
My continuous engagement with the people on the basis of enquiries and survey has prompted that the problem has led to increased infant mortality within the community as a result of cholera contacted from the bad water that they have been consuming.
The objective of this was to ensure the community has access to clean and drinkable water. My goal was to create a borehole that will be capable of serving the community with clean water.
