Give Access to Clean Water via Bore Holes
Provided funding for 7300 days of access to life-saving clean water to families in need.
Project managed by: New Ways
Rain in Turkana is a rare event and thus the locals often lack access to a water source. You can provide a person with water for one day by lending your support in the construction of water infrastructure such as a borehole. Boreholes are sunk deep into the ground to reach the water table and are able to supply water for the locals and livestock throughout the year, creating a more sustainable lifestyle for the community.
More About This Project
The work needed to establish a borehole is quite scientific. Several borehole sites are usually required in the area before the best site is found. The equipment comprises heavy machinery which usually has to travel many miles across remote terrain where no roads exist. But the effort is worth it as once established successfully, boreholes are able to provide clean water to a village for up to ten years. A pump powered by solar panels is also installed which means there is no need to spend time pumping by hand. The water is pumped into the holding tanks and only requires turning on a tap!
