What is Workout for Water funding?

The Amhara region of Ethiopia is located in the north-western part of the country. It has been critically affected by the 2015/2016 El Niño which has driven an ongoing massive drought impacting over one and a half million people. 

  • Farm production has been severely impacted, contributing to malnutrition 
  • The availability of community shallow water points has decreased 
  • Children and women are now spending the majority of their day fetching water from remote areas 
  • The water they collect is insufficient in terms of quantity and safety with incidences of water-borne diseases 

In 2016, construction was started on Phase One of a multi-village rural piped system in the Lega area of Awabel Woreda, Amhara, in order to counteract the ongoing drought and provide a sustainable and climate-resilient water source. 

The completed water system has 59 km of pipe line connected to 21 villages, 6 schools and 3 health facilities. The project is now benefitting 25,000 people and over 6,000 children within the surrounding 27 kilometres – it has been an overwhelming success and will continue to deliver clean, safe and sustainable water to the community for generations. 

By addressing long term sustainability, this project has marked a shift away from the traditional, shallow water sources that are seriously impacted by the effects of climate change. 

In 2018 a similar climate-resilient, rural piped water system was deployed in the Yelam Gej area of Amhara. 

In 2019 UNICEF, in collaboration with Workout for Water and Les Mills, will raise funds to initiate Phase Two of the Lega and Yelam Gej water systems. By extending the reach of the water systems, the project will reach an additional 50,000 people and target 20,824 people who are experiencing severe water deficiency.
