Proposed Project

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.

Program Plans

Wells for Sudan - Schools


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

With your help, fresh-water wells are being placed at schools
in Southern Sudan for about $4,000 each.

Access to clean, safe water has a profound impact on both students and the surrounding communities.  Students are relieved from walking miles for water which is dirty and diseased.  They have more time in class, and health improves dramatically as the children learn the importance of good hygiene and sanitation in addition to having abundant clean drinking water.

Wells at schools change lives forever.
