The #FollowTheMoney (FTM) Team during its data mining session found out that the European Union Cooperation is funding the rehabilitation and construction of water and sanitation facilities in Kano State at an estimate of NGN 3 billion with the implementing agencies being the Federal Ministry of Budget and National Planning, Federal Ministry of Water Resources, as well as the Kano State Ministry of Water Resources. This is through its 10th European Development Fund Programme and under the Water Supply and Sanitation Sector Reform Programme Phase II. Such intervention is quite timely owing that several rural communities in the state including Kwara Community in Tsanyawa LGA has no access to clean water which has led to the proliferation of water-borne diseases such as diarrhea.

We have initiated the #WaterKwarwa Campaign advocating for the provision of water borehole to the community while using the campaign as a point of contact in tracking the implementation of the rehabilitation and construction of water and sanitation facilities across rural communities in Kano State. We invite the public to get involved in the campaign today. Help us in this campaign so that the rural community members would have access to clean water.
