In Tajikistan, many people now have access to clean drinking water because of Global Partners.
“The 2010 well-digging project in Shartuz District created six clean drinking water wells and is an ongoing project,” one GP worker said. “The project has benefited over 1,000 people so far. We will continue the well project in Khatlon Region expanding our operations to many more villages.”
A recent irrigation project in the village of Shahidi Bobohon of Khatlon Region benefitted 800 people who rely on crops from the fields surrounding their village. And a water project provided natural spring water to the 600 people of Takob village (Varzob District).
In the arid Zarafshan Valley, Global Partners conducted drinking water projects in the Yovon Aini region and in the village of Revad. To ensure that local villages in the Hadishar and Mastcho region could grow vital crops for their families, GP provided pipe to repair a much needed water line for irrigating fields and trees.
GP is always looking for sustainable ways to get water to thirsty mouths and dry fields. In the village of Safed Hok, GP provided a water wheel to a farmer as a test model. The design of this project is to help farmers by moving irrigation water from canals and rivers to higher ground. GP also purchased and installed 5km of water pipe to this village, providing 20 homes with drinking water. Another 150 homes benefited from drinking water received from 5km of water pipe that GP installed to the nearby village of Belgi.
