Proposed Project

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.

Well Rehab in Kenya


Project Type: Well Rehab
Project type subject to change prior to completion based on community needs and geographical and hydro-geological limitations.

Repairing wells can be one of the most efficient ways to bring clean, safe water to a community.  When our partners identify old broken down wells, they assess the costs of repairing it vs. replacing it.  Often times, it's relativly easy to simply replace a rusted pump or even re-case the hole.

Each repair project is put through the same community mobilization process as a new well.  Communities are trained in sanitation and hygiene and long-term follow up is put in place so that the repaired well will work for as long as possible.


We're just getting started, check back soon!
