"WATER IS PERSONAL"
MUTWANGA, NORTH KIVU, EASTERN CONGO, 28 FEBRUARY 2012: Kaseraka, 28, a polio victim, sweeps stones away from the main water flow area on a Hydro-electric project in Mutwanga, Democratic Republic of Congo. Kaseraka is in charge of maintenance for the project and is typical of the disadvantaged community this scheme will benefit. He built most of this flow pipeline and despite his lack of eduction and his handicap, it is correct to within one inch. This hydro-electric scheme will provide electricity to an impoverished community of 25 000 people as well as to schools, a general hospital and an orphanage. Electricity will also be available for industry and that could revolutionise the community, allowing for the retention of the value of Congolese products internally as opposed to constant and expensive imports.
