Hand pumps and Security

Number of hand pump thieves and vandalizing has increased a lot in the past few years.

The high cost of stolen spare parts replacement for community leads to many non working hand pumps.

To prevent that, O&M project propose security systems.

An optimized way to secured the water point (picture shows an overview of the solution for Afridev) has been elaborated and promoted (with fliers) through Area Mechanic network.
