Our partner reports,

Poondi Pu School was our second stop of the day with 6
projects to go.  This is a government run school which from an
appearance point of view was a stark contrast than our previous stop.
Here the kids were younger, 300 of them and somewhat unsure of us as
visitors.  We seemed like strangers to them and it took them a little
time to warm up to us.  By the time we left though we had many of them
smiling; taking their picture really helps!

This project was a single hand pump bore well which has it's
primarily provides water to the children at the school as well as the
nearby huts.

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.
