Like many villages in the dry, arid Tigray region, Seglamen’s greatest need is access to clean, potable water. Because the land is so rocky and dry and the water table is so deep underground, it will take the construction of a deep borehole water project to bring safe water to distribution points throughout the village. Beyond the need for water, the health situation is also very precarious. While a health extension worker lives in the village, she lives and works out of a crudely constructed one room stone hut. In order to effectively serve the thousands of people in the village, the health worker requires a new, fully furnished and equipped health post with access to clean water and latrines. The area also needs new school buildings. Currently, students walk miles to attend school in crumbling, overcrowded buildings. They do not have access to materials necessary for a successful education. They need a full primary school with new classroom blocks, a new library, and a new laboratory with all the necessary equipment to provide the students with the tools for success.
