Story taken from: Rev. Tom
Ezbon Lumana, Headmaster

Headmaster Lumana wanted to
express his great joy and thankfulness for the drilling of the borehole
at the school.

"The school has over 600
students so a borehole was needed.  The students were traveling long
distances through the bush risking getting bitten by snakes.  The local
community were they went to get water complained of the great number of
students using their water source.  All these problems caused us to pray
for the drilling of a borehole."

"May God bless this
organization and the donors and I hope they continue to help those in
need.  Thank you once more from all the school administrators.  We
promise to properly maintain the borehole so there is water for
generations to come."

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! Learn more here!
