This new well serves a village of about 650 people, mostly agricultural laborers. Before this well was installed they did not have a protected source of water. The well in use was unreliable and filled with garbage (you can see pictures of it below). Today, thanks to the generosity of individual donors to The Water Project, these families are enjoying clean and safe drinking water.
Our implementing partner noted about their visit,
“Arriving at this place and experiencing the fireworks and the celebration was a tad overwhelming but when you consider what they had previously to what exists now, it’s no wonder they were excited to have us and show off their new water source.”
