This well was originally drilled in 2009. Unfortunately the team
installed a sub-standard well pump that quickly rusted and fell apart.
We have taken measures to ensure this never happens again, including
finding a new source of pumps and re-training workers.  Staff changes
were also a part of this re-training.

This well serves nearly 800 people in total.  The school serves 450 students.

Here’s a link to the original project:

Latest Updates:

9/27/2010 – Our partner reports that all repairs are complete and the project has been handed over to the school.

They report from the dedication ceremony… (unedited)

“we managed to reach Ebumamu primary school at 3.30 p.m and found the school waiting for us. We all marched towards the water system and had speeches from the headmaster, the head girl and the teacher on duty.

They all appreciated and wished that God would bless the water project abundantly so that they may reach other people in great need  of water. That marked the end of our handling over ceremony in the rehabilitated sites.”

9/21/2010 – New Pump Attached.

We're just getting started, check back soon!



Project Type

Well rehabilitation is one of the most cost effective ways to bring clean, safe water to a community.  Sometimes it involves fixing a broken hand pump, other times it means sealing a hand dug well to prevent it from being contaminated.  These repairs, and often time total replacements, coupled with sanitation and hygiene training make a huge impact in communities.
