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.”

We're just getting started, check back soon!

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.
