Water access and quality projects focus on improving access to and the quality of water for communities, as well as enhancing community water system management capacities through training and community education.
In 2009 when TPP first began working in Naitolia, over 85 percent of Naitolia households got their water from unsafe sources and women spent many hours hauling water to their homes. By 2015, in collaboration with the District government and village members, TPP installed a water distribution system that draws from a deep well with safe water. The water system now reaches all but one sub-village in this sprawling Maasai community. TPP trained the Village Water Committee that oversees the system and installed rainwater harvesting systems at the school and village health dispensary. But just as a solution to water access was in sight, unseasonably heavy rains and flooding damaged key parts of the water system. A new pump house was constructed well above the 100 year flood plain and repairs were made to the generator which supplies electricity to pump water to distant parts of the village.
