Matipa Village - Well Repair

Matipa Well Repair Begins

Clean Water for a community in Zambia

Completed in October 2008, this water project now serves over 1,000 people in Matipa Village.

These repairs were sponsored by Balmoral Hall School for Girls, Grace D. and her 3rd grade class from Poquonock School, and the Forest United Methodist Church.

For just over $1,000 (this repair was a complete rebuild), these three groups have provided water for less than $1/person.

It should last for another 10 years!

Matipa Well Repair Completed

The old well had ceased to function and an attempt to fix had only made matters worse. Upon completion of the well, community members spoke of how thankful they were to once again have clean water.

“At first it made me really sad to see kids in Africa without water. I wanted to help the kids in Africa because I don't like it when kids suffer around the world and know they are all sad with thirst.”

- Lourdes, 6th grade
