The Millennium Challenge Corporation says Zambia is set to benefit from the second phase of the MCC Project following the expiry of the first one in November 2018.
MCC Chief Executive Officer Alice Albright has expressed happiness with the impact of the first compact which has enabled an uninterrupted supply of clean water to Lusaka’s Jack compound in Kabwata Constituency.
Ms. Albright has described the water project as a success as the people of Jack Compound no longer spend hours in search of the commodity.
Speaking when she met beneficiaries from the first compact efforts to build communal water kiosks to over 1,000 household connections in Jack compound, Ms. Albright commended the Zambian government and MCC team for the successful implementation of the Millennium Compact Project.
Ms. Albright also announced that preliminary preparations for the second Millennium compact project have started following Zambia’s qualification for the second Millennium compact facility.
And Lusaka Water Supply and Sanitation Company Managing Director Jonathan Kampata revealed that over 30,000 people are benefiting from the first Millennium Challenge compact project which has reduced the disease burden in Jack compound owing to improved access to clean water.
