Huntington Water Project – Huntington Village

Huntington Water Project – Huntington Village

This program aims to respond effectively to the water crisis in local communities, where access to clean drinking water is limited and is insufficient for the village population’s needs. The South African constitution’s mandate that every human being must have access to clean drinking water is not being met.

After investigating Huntington’s access to water, More Community Foundation determined that the community had inadequate access to clean water, and that the effects of the water crisis were profoundly impacting many facets of local life – including education, employment and health care.

As MCF receives funds, we meet requests from the Huntington Community Development Forum (CDF), the local Tribal Authority and the Induna (the Village Elder) to install boreholes in predetermined sites.
