Due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, we were not able to obtain photographs in 2020. We are working to do that in the first 6 months of 2021, and will post pictures as soon as possible.

Pre-Borehole Notes

Difficulties these villagers faced:

  • Previous source of water was a shallow well in a mountain cave, sometimes shared with baboons and other monkeys.
  • People would go days with a bath.
  • Many students would miss school because they were very late spending time retrieving water.
  • They used to have many cases of diarrhea.
  • Family problems as some men suspected their wives were with other men than going to the water source.
