Villiages of Nacomoto, Joma, Drue, Naivakaraniuniu and Dravuwalu Primary School were assisted in 2014. The purpose of these projects were to upgrade the existing catchment, protect the water sources and boost storage capacity. In Nacomoto, an underground spring catchment with collection box was constructed and connected to the existing mainline in the village. Part of the mainline was extended and leaks in the village were fixed. After consultation, the village agreed to prohibit farming upstream to avoid any risk of surface water contamination. These projects were made possible with funding from our corporate partner Fiji Water Foundation..
