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

Abundant water is often right under our feet! Beneath the Earth’s surface, rivers called aquifers flow through layers of sediment and rock, providing a constant supply of safe water. For borehole wells, we drill deep into the earth, allowing us to access this water which is naturally filtered and protected from sources of contamination at the surface level. First, we decide where to drill by surveying the area and determining where aquifers are likely to sit. To reach the underground water, our drill rigs plunge through meters (sometimes even hundreds of meters!) of soil, silt, rock, and more. Once the drill finds water, we build a well platform and attach a hand pump. If all goes as planned, the community is left with a safe, closed water source providing around five gallons of water per minute!

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