In Loving Memory of Fay Feunekes

For helping them get safe drinking water


Gidan Hausa is a community of about 350 people, located 3km from Maikanti in Toto Local Government Area of Nasarawa State. In this area there is a constant struggle for grazing between cattle herdsmen and local crop farmers. A lot of the residents are muslim petty traders and fishermen who follow the banks of the river for their source of livelihood.
