A new well has been completed at the Jalimo Secondary School in Kajo-Keju, Sudan.

This new well will serve over 400 people in the community.

A teacher from the school was asked for her thoughts about this project…

“I would like to thank the donors for rectifying our water problem. In the last few years
we have struggled with water scarcity, mostly during dry season.  The cooks have been moving long distances looking for water to prepare food for the students.

I also want to appreciate the donors so much because many problems like wastage of time and other safety issues will be solved because of this borehole. The common diseases that have been faced within this school like Typhoid can now be avoided. Our community is also relieved from the same problems because
now they will be getting water from our well.

Lastly , I want to thank the donors for their offering to us.  We feel very special and honored.  With God there is nothing impossible and water is life (John 4:10).

Thank you very much for the work you have done for us.  God bless you all!!”

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.

I want to thank the donors for their offering to us. We feel very special and honored. With God there is nothing impossible.
