This is Well #6, given by Northview Christian Church.

The villagers using this project were previously forced
to take water from sources which were really unfit for consumption. The
overhead tanks built by the government are not supplying water due to
limited power and even when water was in the tank it was dirty and
unsafe.   As a result of this project, now with the bore well in their
locale, they can drink confidently.

We're just getting started, check back soon!



Project Type

Borehole and Hand Pump

Girls and women walk long distances for water when safe water is very often right under their feet! Underground rivers, called aquifers, often contain a constant supply of safe water – but you have to get to it. No matter what machine or piece of equipment is used, all drilling is aiming for a borehole that reaches into an aquifer. If the aquifer has water - and after the well is developed - we are able to pull water to the surface utilizing a hand-pump. If all goes as planned, the community is left with a safe, closed water source providing around 5 gallons of water a minute through a hand-pump.
