Some 30,000 inhabitants of Tabata-Bima in rural Tanzania have ready access to fresh drinking water in their village following the completion of the ‘Water for Life’ borehole project promoted by water aid charity Just a Drop and sponsored by Corinthia Hotels.
Just a Drop collaborated with St Mary’s Foundation in Tanzania to construct boreholes to provide the Tabata community access to a piped water supply. To celebrate, a ceremony was held on July 6 at the Tabata Junior School where residents paid tribute to Corinthia’s support and pupils at Tabata Junior recited poetry expressing gratitude to Corinthia and Mr Pisani for the company’s support.
The Tabata-Bima community has been encouraged to take ownership of the project and are keen to maintain their new water supply.
